Year 4 Art – Clay Animal Sculptures

Mar 7, 2024Art

After studying the work of Maria Prymachenko and exploring techniques with clay last half term, we finally put our ideas into practice and created our very own clay animal sculptures. We made them as realistic or fantastical as we wanted, some with other aspects of nature included. We used cross-hatching and clay slip to join pieces of clay so that they wouldn’t fall apart as the clay dries and shrinks, and some of us even used a mould to create the shape of the animal’s body.
