Action Figures! This is one of my favorite projects this year.
I volunteered to make this project with Mrs. Stanley’s Bay Farm 1st grade class this year. She is a top notch teacher! It appears that her kids get the best. She loves to travel and supports her class in developing International pen pals around the globe. I met her last spring when I teaching my after-school class, Super Silly Sculptures at Bay Farm Schooll, through the Alameda Education Foundation.

I am teaching a fun class for adults!
We’ll make a sculpture in less than one hour that you can take home and teach to others.
I’d love to see you there!
