Reuse, Recycle, Regenerate: Sculpture From Recycled Materials
October 11, 2020 – October 17, 2020
The goal of this workshop is to utilize inexpensive recycled and found materials to design and create simple sculptures and models for larger ones. Students will begin with drawings, then proceed to making models scaled to reflect their ultimate sculptures. During class, armatures of foam, wood and wire are covered along with the use of various materials including papier mache, plaster, cardboard, tin cans and found objects. Shaping and forming these materials quickly and spontaneously, participants will develop their artistic vision through simple assignments and their own creativity. Hand tools will be used and may include a bandsaw and a welder. No advanced tools or techniques are required. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
