Clay Chinese Dragons

These dragons were made by my Grade 5 students earlier this year for Year of The Dragon. After some research, we discovered that Chinese dragons are traditionally portrayed as a creature with a snake-like body, the head of a camel, ears of a cow, eyes of a bull, horns of a stag, scales of a fish and claws of an eagle.
These individual characteristics really helped the students to create their dragons one feature at a time. After firing, the dragons were painted and some students chose to add glitter or googly eyes.
