Sculpture

Express your creativity and vision by exploring the limitless art of sculpture. At Anderson Ranch, our sculpture program offers a vibrant spectrum of workshops that reflect a variety of studio practices. At the confluence of tradition and technology, these programs are material and technique-rich, ranging from classical metal fabrication to experimental digital production.

Students work in communal and interactive studios designed for all levels of experience, supporting traditional and nontraditional methods. The sculpture studios are fully equipped with advanced machinery and offer additional outdoor covered workspace.

Our renowned sculpture faculty work closely with students through critical discussions, material demonstrations and individual assistance. Instructors encourage exploration and experimentation, emphasizing process and idea development. We complement this with a focus on process and sound construction. You leave with far more than finished pieces—you walk away with the tools and inspiration required to elevate your studio practice.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Introduction to Projection Mapping

Ryan Rasmussen

Tuition $595
Code S48W02-21

In this course we explore how projected image can be mapped to a variety of surfaces and materials to embellish, enhance, enliven, and/or activate them. Each student explores how projection mapping may be used as a way of creating active and time-based surfaces in their works. Demonstrations cover the three main aspects of this process: digital video and image manipulation, creating a 3D volume out of materials such as foamcore, cardboard, and fabric, and mapping digital media to constructed forms via computer and projector. All students should have access to a cheap projector for the duration of the workshop.
