Project Description

This class is all about beetles!
Now it's your turn to sculpt you own beetle.
You can do it as realistically as you want, it might even be a little abstract if you can't be bothered with the legs.
Beetles are a huge source of inspiration in my own work, I'm sure you'll find some inspiration as well!
Don't forget to share your project with the class, I love to see what you come up with!
