This webinar was used to demystify the process of creating large-scale permanent works of art with students and shows how this process can be used to build an arts community within your school. Through 18 years of trial and error, I have developed a comprehensive process that allows students through collaboration, to experience first-hand what it takes to create a personalized monumental sculpture. This process not only aligns with the new art standards, it, more importantly, has changed the learning environment and the way I teach.
