The seventh grade recently visited Asheville, North Carolina. Students were instructed to observe the various types of gargoyles on the exterior of the Biltmore Estate. Once back in the classroom, students learned about the history of gargoyles. They were allowed to build either a grotesque face, chimera, or a true gargoyle which must allow water to pass through. They will glaze their gargoyles with color and then be fired inside the kiln.
