Dogs, dogs, dogs, from collies to Chihuahuas, from heelers to bulldogs parade on the shelves at the Mason Co. M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library. Mason Junior High seventh graders have created sculptures of their favorite dogs and graciously agreed to exhibit them publicly. After researching the development of the dog from prehistoric tribe dog to our present day refined breeds, each student created an example. The sculptures were made using cardboard outlines, newspaper wadding for muscle definition and then a paper mache clay was added to finish the shapes.
The clay was mixed daily and consisted of toilet paper, joint compound, flour, linseed oil and glue. The last detail was a ribbon collar and dog tag. Come to the library and enjoy the artistic endeavors of our Mason seventh graders!
