Peter Diem inspired Cow sculpture~ Year 3-4 art lesson

Students used a combination of materials to make these Peter Diem inspired models.

The Body & Head:

Air dry clay was used to form the body. Students formed a small pinch pot into a rounded shape, pulling and shaping legs so that it would stand. The head is using paper clay like Crayola Model Magic over a cork.

Paper clay / Model Magic is formed into thin rolls or shapes and pressed onto the body to add pattern, colour and TEXTURE.
