Making a relief sculpture via soap carving, Fri, Mar 31

Paper Parthenon project
Originally uploaded by trudeau.
Buy an extra bar of soap and plan to use it in a sculpture to be carved in geo class Fri, Mar 31. The only way to really understand the ancient art of relief sculpting is to try it oneself.

Greek motifs will be our subject: letters from the Greek alphabet, temple facades and even philosophers' faces. The soap (Ivory is recommmended because it is soft and forgiving but any brand or color will be fine) will be sculpted with large paper clip wire, which I will supply.

15 pts. for bringing the soap, participating in the exercise, and for cleaning up your area afterwards.
