The students at Woods are close to finishing up the sculptures. Monday should be final touches and then some drying before we load them in the kiln. Here is a coyote pretty much finished up
and a soon to be finished beaver from Owen. I'll be sad to see this class finishing up. I have had so much fun, this is one of the best projects I've worked on. I wish there were more clay opportunities available in our community for high school kids but I'm afraid they are so busy with school and sports and jobs, they probably don't have time for things like sculpting animals, too bad. I think that is why this residency is so great. I can bring the clay to a captive audience. We should always be trying to cultivate art appreciation in our young people, even it they don't become artists, they will be the ones buying our art one day!
