Exploring Animals

We worked with year 5 on their rainforest topic. The children were interested in animals and we started with observational drawings of the animals, looking at details of features, form and textures. The children wanted to make 3D animals, so tried different modelling materials to see what worked best. Exploring, clay, paper mache and mod roc. They decided to use mod roc to make animal heads. Using layers of acrylic paint and collage to add texture and details to the animal heads.
