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.
COURSE FEE: $600
