After that, we worked with modeling clay. First they sketched out ideas of what they wanted to do in clay. After their juices were flowing, they build lovely things like this alligator. We set them up under a lamp and darkened the room so they could see the shadows on their pieces, and they drew them again - so they could remember! Tons of fun. Hard to get them out of the classroom once our time was up.
This one is lovely, lovely. I don't know the background on this particular one, but it's likely that he built a small model and set it on a mirror, as he did many other times with similar images.
