Activity One: Design a Gargoyle or Grotesque

Gargoyles and grotesques are stone carvings that protect buildings. Some take human or animal shapes, while others are fantastical monsters. Many are humorous. Pick a location in your school building where a grotesque or gargoyle would fit. Draw a design for a carving. Should it be a humorous carving? A scary one? What is the symbolic meaning of your design?
