In search of the lost wax
The focusing question of this capstone is: How can reflection on the lost wax process expand my knowledge and contribute to my growth as an art teacher? It is a narrative, in the form of a memoir. It includes the positive learning experience I had when I visited a bronze casting foundry in Osceola, Wisconsin as well as the follow up studio work, the sculptures my family, that I produced because of it. One purpose of this capstone then became to trace the connections between my life experiences and my growth as a teacher and to illustrate the importance of story in my classroom. I begin my memoir, by chronicling my life experiences that help form me into an effective Art teacher and transition to the learning of the secrets of lost wax sculpting resulting in a sculpture garden of my family.
