Students will build a small 3D clay slab sculpture, using various hand building techniques, after first having sketched out their plan on paper. Students will work with the artist to refine their sketch to ensure the design plan has variety to increase interest, and that the structure will be able to free stand. Once the sculpture is dry, the students may wish to add some paint to colour their sculpture.
