DERBY - From ballerinas to unicorns, children in Valley Arts Council President Rich DiCarlo's sculpture class this month at the library have been using their imaginations as they learn to work with clay.
DiCarlo said he let his nine students, ages 10-13, choose what they wanted to create.
Ansonia resident Alexys Ryan, 13, plays ice hockey, and she said that's why she chose a hockey player to create. Her sister, Aryanna Ryan, 10, below, is making a giraffe.
Now all the giraffe needs are horns, ears, and a tail.
Ansonia resident Anaisa Burgo, 12, carefully sculpts a ballerina figure.
There is one class remaining. DiCarlo said he will help the children finish the pieces at that time, and if they wish they can paint them at home.
