Class Description


What you'll learn in this sculpture class:

In this course we will explore the aesthetic and conceptual possibilities of a variety of materials such as paper, paper clay, recycled materials and metal using them through the three-dimensional form. The basic principles of sculpture will be discussed; line, color, value, shape, form, space, scale, texture, balance mass and volume.  Historical practices, techniques and other artists working in the medium will be introduced through lectures, group critiques, and discussions.  We will begin with the process of ideation, which includes creating sketches, material studies and the making small prototypes.  They we move into the sculpture making process.  

Artists will be encouraged to work from their choice of subjects, themes and concepts.  Beginners to advance students are welcomed.
