In just about an hour, the classroom of fifth-graders was overrun with monsters.
Well, being made of clay, these monsters didn’t run — but they were on every desk, molded into any shape the students could create.
Some had one eye, some had four — nearly all had a mouthful of pointy teeth, horns, ears and claws.
Across the hall, in another fifth-grade classroom, a less terrifying art project — printmaking — was under way.
This week the students at South Baker Intermediate School were visited by two Portland artists — James DeRosso and Sheryl Murray.
