A great project I've been doing for years with 7th graders.....relief
fish......they learn to make a slab.....decorate by adding on, carving into ,
and stamping......get as many books and pictures of fish....have them sketch
it out try for imaginative tropical fish......make a pattern....and then cut
out and put on the slab to cut the clay the same......make them big....and
then put a little wad of paper under the fish to make it stick out......flare
out the fins....they come out great....we glaze them and the kids LOVE
them.....as seniors they tell me they have their "fish"........good luck!
