Celebrate the Halloween season with an art lesson on relief carving. For this assignment, students are introduced to relief carving techniques by carving a pumpkin design. They must research pumpkin artist, Ray Villafane, as well as famous works of art as inspiration. It is a great introduction to sculpture for elementary, middle school, or high school visual art students.
