3rd grade - Clay Coil Animals

Third grade students, having worked with clay before, created coil animals. Students discussed the wood carvings from the Oaxaca region in Mexico and created clay coil animals using these Mexican artists as their inspiration. Students painted their animals using acrylic paints and used bright colors and patterns just as their inspirational Oaxacan sculptors.
