Our artists in Art Smart club made these beautiful clay owls. What was really interesting was how from a common starting point, the owls all turned out very differently with their own characters and quirks. One even turned out to a penguin! Some of the children were aiming to achieve a cartoon-style owl and others, a more naturalistic finished product. They started off by doing some observational drawings and, after constructing the form, they used a variety of tools to add texture. Smart artists, wise owls!
