Hollow Paper Sculpture

August 5, 2018 – August 11, 2018

Elizabeth Alexander

This workshop is an in-depth exploration of sculpting with paper. Students will study the contemporary and historical uses of this medium while they conduct technical exercises and develop their own language with paper. The course focuses on casting paper forms from objects to create seemingly weightless assemblages that can be painted, cut into, collaged onto, etc. Other sculpting techniques may also be discussed. There will be critiques and group discussions as the work evolves. This course is open to all levels.


Elizabeth Alexander is an interdisciplinary artist specializing in sculptures and installations made from paper and found objects with degrees from Cranbrook Academy and the Massachusetts College of Art. Her work has been shown across the country, and she has received residencies and fellowships from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the St. Botolph foundation, the Vermont Studio Center, and I-Park. She is currently on faculty the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
