Calvin is getting tuition on clay modelling from an artist in her studio and, as a home project, has made this warthog. He's been asked to make models from clay that can be auctioned at a charity event in the Spring – and he's getting paid for making them! Not sure what he's getting but it'll be in the thousands I'd expect.

Anyway, after the initial lesson – which was very informative – he's learnt about hollowing the model with paper and how to make sure that it doesn't explode in the kiln when it's fired. Using what he was taught he's made this warthog to take to his second lesson tomorrow afternoon.

It's all very exciting!
