Here are two sites that Sean Grigsby posted to Net Gold list that I
though would/could inspire a lesson.

Public Art • Corporate Art - Private Commissions - Sculpture • Kinetic
Slide show presents maquettes, drawings and works in place. You can
pause the show to talk about the work - and can advance to next to

digitally inserted them into a setting around the school campus. It
was a very impressive lesson. I have seen others follow his lead.

clays and other mixed media. Smaller pieces are usually made with
aluminum foil and wire armature covered with air-dry or polymer clays.
Finishing touches are added with acrylic paint.
