4 lessons//4 Weeks
 Week 1
Lesson 1
Design and Create a Sleeping Dragon Sculpture!
Plan out one main color, one or two accent colors, and wing color.
 Week 2
Lesson 2
Design and Create a Standing Dragon Sculpture!
This dragon will be holding something…you can use a glass marble, stone, or create an orb or egg out of clay.
 Week 3
Lesson 3
Design and Create a Gemstone Dragon Sculpture!
SAPPHIRE or RUBY…Sapphire and Ruby are the two gem-varieties of corundum, so they are very similar in make up.
 Week 4
Lesson 4
Design and Create an Elemental Dragon Sculpture!
This class is taught in English.
Polymer Clay (any brand you prefer. I like to use Sculpey). *In total, approximately 1/2 of a 2oz. brick is plenty per dragon!* (a tiny bit goes a LONG way with miniatures!!)
Basic Sculpting tools, toothpick, smoothing tool
A Baking sheet (covered with parchment)
Cutting tool or clay knife
A non stick surface to work on (You can cover a piece of cardboard with parchment paper and tape it to the bottom…that works)
A small rolling pin 
Variety of colors of polymer clay (whatever colors you want for your dragons)
Metal sculpting/jewelry wire or wooden toothpicks (to attach the head to body)
Note: I like to use Translucent polymer clay for wings and fins so they have a clear appearance, but that is optional.
Small GLASS beads or Crystals for eyes (for 3 of the dragons). I use 6.0 size seed beads. You may use clay if you cannot access these.
NO PLASTIC. We can only bake Glass, Wood, Metal and natural stone/crystal. 
OPTIONAL: A glass marble, crystal, bead or stone (for weeks 2 and 3)  
Aluminum Foil (for propping)

Clear Water-Based Gloss Polyurethane, Mod Podge or Sculpey Gloss Glaze for after baking 

**Polymer clay requires baking according to the package direction. (Generally ~275 °F, depending on your brand of clay). You may do this after class. Parental help is necessary.

NOTE: Students may use air dry clay or modeling dough if they prefer not to use polymer bake clay
