The Art of Concrete

November 3, 2019 – November 9, 2019

Sherri Warner Hunter

Students will create their own concrete sculpture using carved polystyrene and non-welded metal elements to build an armature.  As your sculpture takes form, you will discover a variety of concrete mix designs and sculpting techniques. Participants will explore the use of color as an integral mix component, and experiment with washes of stains and other surface treatments, adding to the versatility concrete has for creative expression. Students will produce at least one well-developed sculpture in addition to test pieces from exploring techniques in casting, carving, modeling and coloring concrete. You will have the opportunity to refine the skills best suited for your personal style. Open to all skill levels.


Sherri Warner Hunter lives and works in Bell Buckle, Tennessee. She received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and an MA from Claremont Universities in Sculpture and Drawing.
