To give the students more opportunity to make sculptures, we have a Playdough Station. In this Art Based Station, students can make any sculpture they want. Below are some examples of students who practiced making masks with the dough.
During a study of artist Alexander Calder, Kinder through Third Grade students created crazy line sculptures out of air-dry clay and pipe cleaners. The students displayed these on their homeroom desks for Open House which also happened to be Big Art Day.

In December, my fourth and fifth graders made various small bowls made out of air-dry clay to sell for our district's Empty Bowls Project. The money raised from the sale of the bowls goes to a local charity that services our community's families. We sold the bowls on our campus and raised a few hundred dollars for the cause. Hopefully next year, we do even more! (Sorry, I don't have any pictures of the finished projects.)
