3rd grade Clay Frogs from El Salvador

Kids – all of ‘em! – love working with clay. Clay project time is an extra exciting time for art students and the art teacher.

Party Frawg

We had so much fun creating our frogs. Their clay frogs’ playful personalities reminded me of Oscar Wilde’s quote that “all art is a self portrait.” It was a joy witnessing the students’ own personalities shine through in their creations.

Some students from my school are from El Salvador, so we wanted to learn more about the country. We studied El Salvador’s volcanos, coffees, and vast variety of wildlife, but we were intrigued with their poisonous frogs. We studied them before we created our frogs.

Then we created our own frogs. Let the games begin!
