My Boy - the Artist

Last month Ran's class studied Mexico.  He had to choose a project to turn in at the end of their studies.  They were given a bunch of different suggestions of what to make.  Ran chose to make a sculpture of a lizard.
The lizard he chose to model is a Short Horned Lizard.  These little guys have a defense mechanism to please any young boy - they can squirt blood from their eyes when threatened!

I think he did a fabulous job!  We made if using air dry clay.  Ran painted all on his own once it was all dry. 
We glued Lizzie onto a piece of plywood covered with sand.  Ran also made some pipe cleaner cactus and a snake to further decorate his model.
