I wrote this plan using her samples - this was a case
of "like minds" - I did this same lesson with my
advanced ceramics students. My advanced class was
presented with themes/ideas - they chose the methods.
The "body forms" (functional/sculpture piece) was also
an advanced lesson.
Another advanced project was a collaborative work.
There were three students in each group. They each had
to make a piece that would stand alone as a work in
itself - but would be part of the group when assembled
together. All of these works were functional/sculpture
ceramics. I can give you more details on this if
I wrote to Joe and Cindi about the ceramic bust
sculpture. Cindi will be submitting her lesson soon.
Hers was for beginning students and I think Joe's was
more for advanced students. I should have the
sculpture book back again in a couple of weeks if you
would like to see it (email me off list).
Some other ideas I have seen high school students do:
Storytellers (on a larger scale thank lesson on IAD)
Rattles (making a grouping of three)
