Studio Art - Historical Figure Sculptures
I like to end the year with this sculpture lesson because kids love learning clay techniques. With end-of-the-year excitement, I can always reel them in with this one. Since some of my Studio Art students have never worked with clay before, we start with basic hand building techniques like pinch pots, coils, and slabs. After the students build confidence from playing with the clay, they brainstorm, sketch, and then sculpt a historical figure.
