During Mrs. Sudia’s 5th hour Sculpture and Pottery class, students have been doing something a little bit scarier than their normal projects. They have been bringing some of West Shore’s 1st graders’ monsters to life.

Using clay, a description of the monster, and a well-drawn picture from the West Shore students, high schoolers mold the monsters out of clay. After the monsters are molded, Sudia fires the clay in a kiln at 2200 degrees, cooking the clay and changing it from a dark grey to a bright white.

After the clay cools students then paint them using any colors they can imagine giving the project their own flare. Most students find the project quite enjoyable and a fun way to make the kids happy.

Senor Jacob Kline said, “I thought it was great idea to make something for the kids.”

After the monsters are made they will be delivered to the elementary students for them to take home and show their parents.

Another senior, Jaden Zaitshik, also enjoyed the project. “It really brings out my creative side, and I hope the kids like them.”

Hopefully Sudia will continue this tradition for years to come, because there’s nothing better than receiving a gift knowing someone put time and effort into making it.
