I liked the owl project idea using construction paper. I have also
seen something similar done in clay. The student rolls out a flat oval
slab and turns down the top similar to the paper project. A beak is made
by pinching the clay where the top of the oval joins back to the middle
. "Ear" tufts can be made by pulling the top edges of the oval out. Eyes
are pressed into the clay with any round object and a "feather" texture
can be achieved by pressing different textured items into the clay.
The owls can be hung by threading yarn through the top . (After they
were fired and finished of course) By the way, I also have just been
"listening" in on the artsednet and enjoying the conversations and great
ideas but hesitant to reply. Usually if I have an idea I e-mail the
individual- I wonder how many others out there are keeping some great
thoughts or lesson plans to themselves because they are unsure of their
reception? Any encouragement for new subscribers?
