So is introducing Plaster Sculpture a bad thing? Just wondering because it
is, or was now, a project I had intended to work on with my 8th graders in a
couple of weeks. Now, I'm rethinking the project I had in mind and a bit
worried about the one I did with my kids last year creating simulated lava.
Any insight to using plaster or not using plaster and maybe suggesting an
alternative is greatly appreciated.
