Clay modeling class at Public School No. 147 in New York City

Boys work with clay in a clay modeling class at New York City Public School No. 147. The boys sit in rows of desks, using cloth to protect the desk surfaces from the clay. The teacher works with a student seated at a front desk. In front of the rows of desks, completed sculptures are drying on a makeshift table created from several benches placed side-by-side and covered with a cloth.
