Bringing "Spirit Bear" to Form

Our 7th grade art students are extending their creative talents into their English lessons too. The students are glazing clay sculpture based on imagery from their reading of "Touching Spirit Bear" with English teachers, Jennifer Joaquin and Mary Reilley.  The students kept a visual journal and created colorful trading cards. They then transferred their ideas into a 12" tall clay sculpture.   The clay supplies were provided by a $250 teacher grant awarded by the Windward Artists Guild.
