Many of you know about the incredible army of terra cotta soldiers and animals and objects that were buried over 2000 years ago in China for the emperor Qin Shi Huang. Soldiers, archers, horses, weapons and all the lavish things that would guard him in the afterlife. You can see some of these objects at the Pacific Science Center until September 4.
In our camp we’ll start by imagining the kinds of animals and beings that we might gather for our protection and joy, and we’ll make
models and objects based on those personal stories. We’ll also collaborate on one project for the studio’s garden right outside of the door. We’ll round out our creative sculpting adventure with colorful decorating and glazing. We’ll fire our menagerie at the end of the session for pick up the following week.
During the daytime, we’ll have breaks of play in the grass and swimming in the lake, for those who want to.
