Clay Figurines

These people did not necessarily need to be related to them. Students chose a variety of influential individuals including a basketball star, a famous singer, the mailman, their mother, and more. Students looked at statues in and around New York City and learned about statues and their role to bring importance and memory into the lives of people. Students then used clay to create a mini statue of that individual and presented it in the critique to follow!
