This collaborative relief sculpture is one of the first I teach in my Introduction to Sculpture and Ceramics class. It gives the students the opportunity to test out carving techniques, learn about relief sculpture, and work as a team. Together, the students create a large image, made up of small clay tiles, that can be displayed in the school.
In this lesson students learn how to work with paper clay, enlarge an image, complete a relief carving and additive sculpture. They don't know what they are creating until you reveal the compiled pieces to create the image at the end.
Included in this lesson plan are:
-Lesson Plan with big idea, essential questions, elementary, middle, and high school national standards, step by step instructions, vocabulary, and supply list
-Collaborative grid PowerPoint
