|The lessons are conducted in a studio format. Sufficient time must be provided for students to develop their ideas. Possible challenges include:
1) Students may not develop their ideas at the same pace.
2) Students may have problems handling plasticine and clay.
3) Not all students may finish their works at the same time for bisque firing. Time management could be an issue.
4) Students may not be able to join parts of their sculptures properly.
Lessons should be paced between 4 to 8 lessons depending on the number of students and their capabilities.
