Mans­field Steiner School ar­ti­sans

Mansfield Courier - - YOUTH NEWS & VIEWS -

THIS year, seven Steiner School stu­dents en­tered their lime­stone sculp­tures in the Mans­field Me­dian to Rare Out­door Art Ex­hi­bi­tion.

Based on the theme of water, the sculp­tures were one of sev­eral projects un­der­taken as part of the ar­ti­san elec­tive sub­ject of­fered to years 8 and 9.

Stu­dents learn both tra­di­tional and mod­ern skills to de­sign and cre­ate unique arte­facts from metal, wood and stone.

The sculp­tures were a big change from their last unit on jew­ellery mak­ing.

In their 15 day in­quiry­based learn­ing in­ten­sive work­shop, stu­dents spent the first 80 min­utes of each day mod­el­ling a life-sized clay head.

CRE­ATION: Charli Dolling with her head.
