Short of the actual experience of sculpting a work of art yourself, the best method for learning the techniques of sculpture is to explain them to someone else. In this activity, you will be building on your reading in Chapter 3 and the study of the accompanying PowerPoint by watching sculptors at work in various You Tube videos. From this, you will then be able to explain a particular type of sculpture to your fellow students. 

From the following links, choose one of the following types of sculpture: subtractive, constructive, substitutionary, or manipulative.
