Reviews from 1st Edition:

“Goals, techniques and materials accompany each unit. Excellent photographs enable readers to grasp methods. Through sculpting according to Peck’s sequence, the student gains optimum learning experience.” —Arts & Activities

“Artists…will find Peck’s coverage to be unusually explicit, incorporating both the fundamentals of creativity with the practicality of producing sculpture from different mediums.”
—The Bookwatch

“Detailed technical instruction on the use of tools and materials is enhanced by esthetic advice and philosophical ruminations. It is difficult to find a technical book on sculpture this concise… Unusual in this text are projects art therapists may find enjoyable and enriching for their own creative development as well as valuable experiences to extend to clients.”
—American Journal of Art Therapy

Dr. Peck is professor of art emeritus, Ramapo College of New Jersey.  Her sculpture is in over 80 public and private collections. Images of her work can be viewed at
