Animals in their Habitats

Tiger in the water

Tiger in the Cave

This is about the cutest penguin ever!

Giraffe, and Elephant in the pond!

Looking to buy myself a little time while we waited for the clay animals to come out of the Kiln, I had the students make environments for their animals. We discussed Background, Middle Ground and Foreground, along with 2-D vs 3-D. It was a great review, and the kids always love getting out the scrap box. Each student created an environment that they thought would make their animal comfortable. When the animals came out of the kiln, we dunked them in a watered down acrylic paint, to give an all over wash. Then, we used paint on tiny brushes to add the details.
