2nd Grade: Clay Day!

Crayola Model Magic Clay 

Second grade students loved creating self-portraits out of clay. All the parts of the face were created by making a ball out of clay or making a coil out of clay. 

Each self-portrait is unique. 
The students enjoyed looking in the mirror to view their facial features and hairstyles. 

Mrs. Montesano's class and Ms. Hollfelder's class painted the skin on their clay self-portraits.
 Next week they'll paint the hair and use markers to fill in the eye and lip color. 

The self-portraits below are a sampling from Ms. Sadusky's class and Ms.Gablein's class.

Do you recognize your child?
