This delightful plaque depicts students along with their parents! Students learn how to successfully plan out a low relief sculpture of themselves and their parents on one large clay slab.
*Note: All in school and virtual clay programs use air dry clay which is much less durable than clay that is bisque fired at our visual art studios. We cannot transport clay from in-school programs to the visual art studios for firing, but if your school has a kiln and a technician, we can supply suitable clay for firing at your school.
