I made these with my older elementary students awhile back, but had forgotten about the pics until recently. We made these stylized mini monkeys out of Sculpey clay. The kids had been learning about the art of Canadian artist Emily Carr. After talking about Carr's love of animals, especially her sidekick pet monkey Woo, we created our own mini monkeys. The kids had such a blast, even creating back stories and personalities for their monkeys. I took these pictures before the monkeys went into the oven to harden, which is why I have a not so lovely scratched baking sheet as a background.
This monkey comes with a coffee cup.
Very stylish bow-ties and mohawk hairdos
A tired monkey with its blanket
The green monkey is chilling with a coconut drink and the monkey with the pink hair was called Professor Wiggles
