The Sixth Grade recently had the opportunity to learn from a District Art Specialist.  She taught students the difference between gargoyles and grotesques.  Students learned that the main difference is gargoyles must have an opening to allow water to move away from a building.  Our sixth graders are amazing artists and made some creative gargoyles and grotesques out of modeling clay and then used black paint to give them an antiqued look!
