There's a nymph in my art class!

Dd has really been enjoying her art class.  This week the class learned about Donatello, the first great Renaissance sculptor.

After a short lecture, the class was handed a Styrofoam egg, some sculpting tools, and clay.  They were given instructions to observe the proportions of the person next to them, and create a human head.

Apparently she was sitting next to a nymph.

This was very easy project if you want to recreate it at home.  All that is needed is a few simple supplies...and some imagination.

Holy cow! She did great! Is there anything that girl can't do?

Give her a math book and you'll find a different girl! Functional, just not as nearly impressive. We all have our weaknesses!

Beautiful sculpture, but I am laughing because your words made me want to see a picture of her neighbor.
