Sculptural Foundations

 

Learn about Sculpture, its techniques, history and ideas.
It’s all about discovery, surprises, and personal growth in this class!  Learn a basic sculptural technique weekly. This course is not only about processes and techniques but also includes ideas about the materials, their limitations and possibilities; we also review the history of aesthetics as it relates to sculpture. This fast-paced, hands-on course teaches you to make more reasonable choices when you consider constructing your ideas. Each student experiences working in additive and subtractive methods using plasticine and plaster; line and space using wire and wood; and planes using sheet metal. All tools and supplies are provided; you will end with 6-scaled pieces and knowledge of how to develop your ideas.
