North Gwinnett art student, teacher design piece for SculpTour

When the city of Suwanee approached North Gwinnett High School art teacher Dallas Gillespie about producing a piece for its SculpTour exhibition this summer, Gillespie turned it into a lesson for students.

For a performance final, students mocked up a sculpture — a maquette — and broke down the cost, materials required and other necessary parameters for carrying the project out. Students presented their projects and the class voted on which would actually be produced for the Suwanee sculpture exhibition.
