Welcome to St George´s Special School

Rock pool Creature Sculptures

During Friday morning’s the 6th form students have been creating sculptures of rock pool creatures in the art option. Firstly they researched the different types of creatures that live in rock pools. Then they chose which one they would like to make. To begin their sculpture they scrunched newspaper up and manipulated it into the shape of their chosen creature. Some students reinforced some areas of their sculpture with wire to give it strength. The next step was to coat the creature with a layer of mod roc to give it some rigidity. The final stage was painting; the students chose bright acrylic colours to make their creature stand out.

We will be displaying the rock pool creatures in a hand sculpted rock pool at the top of the ramp in school. This is currently under construction by 6th form students on Friday mornings.
