Eighth Grade Carving Sculpture

We started with a foam brick and drew our design from three angles: top, sides and front. Then we carved out the dead space corners.
We used steak knives, rasps, and metal files.
Soon the animal came to shape and the fine details were last. Between the legs were done last since it was the most delicate carving.
The subject matter was Egyptian animal carvings like the pharaohs would have buried in their pyramids. Lastly the students chose a rock to model their carving after with acrylic paint.
