Week 1: June 19-23, 2017
If you love to work with your hands and build things, this course is for you! In this course, you will have the opportunity to create unique sculptures while learning both additive and subtractive methods. We will learn how to create original dynamic figure sculptures using armature wire, plaster gauze, and plaster. We will also learn some basic woodworking skills as we fashion wood bases for your sculptures. An appreciation for the art of carving will be fostered as we study the work of Michelangelo and Henry Moore as inspiration for your very own carved sculpture. No previous sculpture experience necessary, just a desire to roll up your sleeves, get your hands messy, and bring your creativity to life through sculpture.
