Dear Art Educators,

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

Howard and Kathleen Meehan

Communicating the Character of a Place
Public Art Corporate Art - Private Commissions - Sculpture Kinetic
Art -Landmarks
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
skip a work. Good site to use if you are doing designs for public art
sculpture.
Makio had his students make clay maquettes (models) of sculptures then
digitally inserted them into a setting around the school campus. It
was a very impressive lesson. I have seen others follow his lead.

Life-size figures are created with PVC pipes, paper pulp, air-dry
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.
Social comment figures.
