Intro to Sculpture
"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free ” - Michelangelo
Want to learn about and try different possibilities in sculpting?
In the first half of this class we will experiment with clay, plaster, paper mache’ and mixed media. We will explore different kinds of sculpting: additive/putting things together, subtractive/carving, and assemblage/constructing with different objects.
In the second part of the class, each student will complete an individual sculpture project, using the materials they most enjoyed working with.
