Add depth to your artistic practice in a fun and engaging workshop that introduces students to the fundamentals of sculpture by exploring basic tools, mediums and principles of design. Students are introduced to several techniques in creating three- dimensional forms with wood, steel, plaster and mixed media. We emphasize essential concepts related to design through development of sketches, abstraction of ideas and formal design throughout the week.

Media & Techniques:

We work with wood fabrication, metal fabrication including cutting and welding, plaster work, a combination of materials and found objects, and finishes.


Students learn from technical demonstrations, lectures, daily projects, one-on-one and group discussions.
