Abstract: The purpose of this project in lieu of thesis is to create a sculpture curriculum resource for art teachers. Sculpture offers a spatial engagement with depth and form to students that other artistic practices cannot. After reviewing art education literature for a pilot study conducted in 2009, it I recognized that sculpture resources were not as available to 6 grade to 12 grade art educators as to drawing, painting, or other 2-D resources were. Since then, my research has focused on addressing the limited availability of sculpture resources for 6-12 art educators by developing an online curriculum resource with project outlines, project examples, and links regarding bringing sculpture into their classroom.
