I have started my advanced art students in a new project that I have personally never tackled before- making a relief sculpture out of clay. For those of you who do not know your art terminology, a relief sculpture is one meant to be seen from just the front. It can be a low relief (think of the portraits on a coin) or high relief (think Mount Rushmore for a Rocky mountain high relief!!) or somewhere in between. I did a sample of a horse galloping in sort of a cloud of smoke or fog- never saw that coming, am I right???
One of my students has worked out a wonderful Loch Ness kind of dragon that is swirling in and out of water- not an easy accomplishment for a clay piece. Good job, girl! The rest of the students have not yet worked out the details yet, but I will keep you posted.

Until next time.... be a joy giver, not a joy stealer!
And find a way to finger-paint!
