Get everything you need to teach a sculpture and ceramics course with my semester-long high school sculpture curriculum. Both clay, leather, mixed media, reeds, and more lessons are covered.


This high school sculpture curriculum pack includes everything I use to teach my high school-level introduction to 3D art course. Included are 7 take-home projects, plus one collaborative project, a visual journal, sketchbook, activities, sketchbook assignments, critiques, and more to help students grasp three-dimensional concepts for using clay, leather, glass, tissue paper and reed, packaging tape, and mixed media.

You will not have to plan a single day of class for an entire semester with this art lesson plan pack.
