Sculptural for Teenagers

Sculpture for Teenagers by Sheila Ceccarelli

These six resources have been designed to give teenagers the opportunity to experiment with making sculpture and introduce basic sculptural principles and ideas into their work.

We hope that these resources will help, not only inspire teenagers to make sculpture and teachers to facilitate making opportunities, within their own programmes,  but also enhance teenagers’ own experiences of looking, understanding and appreciating sculpture.
