Learning about the parts of the brain through clay skulls

The Anatomy and Physiology class are making clay skulls to learn about the lobes of the brain. They used molds to form the clay into the skull shape and then they got them put into the kiln in the art room. After they were in the kiln they had to start to draw where all the lobes were with a marker. Once they got the lobes labeled they picked out colors to start painting.

“The clay skulls were pretty fun to make and the best part about it is that I will get to use it again in college for what I want to go into,” Regan Schmidt ’18 said.
