123 I Can Sculpt! (Starting Art)

In 123 I Can Sculpt!, Irene Luxbacher shows aspiring Michaelangelos that they can create amazing animal sculptures simply by using the myriad of materials they can find around the house. Whether a sculpture of a dinosaur, giraffe, lamb or a flock of birds is what you desire, all you need is egg cartons, cardboard tubes, buttons, cotton balls, masking tape, glue, a bit of creativity and a dash of imagination.
