Eye of the Dragon: Second Grade Mixed Media Sculptures

All Current Exhibits  January 28, 2023
9 colorful eye-shaped sculptures

Second graders at the Florida Ruffin Ridley School created 3-D dragon eye sculptures! Students discussed the importance of texture and color before beginning their sculpture work. First, students began by choosing colored pencils to create a realistic eye drawing. Then we glued them back to a glass bead to create a realistic eye effect. Then we folded the bead into model magic, and students mixed their own colors of clay to create these unique and exciting dragon’s eyes. This exhibition comes up just after the celebration of Lunar New Year, which features the dragon as a symbol of good luck!
