3-D Printing & Mold Making

Jul 19 - 23, 2021

9AM-5PM

Concept

This exciting and rigorous workshop is an introduction to Rhinoceros 3-D modeling software, 3-D printing, multi-part rubber mold making, and casting. Students create their own 3-D-printed parts for mold making and plastic casting. The class explores and discusses the potential of 3-D technologies and practices as it relates to industry as well as an individual studio practice. This workshop is structured to provide an environment for students with little previous experience and help guide them to feel comfortable and knowledgeable using these new techniques and methods in their own studio.

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.

Hybrid Sculptural Problem Solving: Digital to Physical Thinking

Gracelee Lawrence

Tuition $1,095
Code S0505-22

Expand your sculptural problem-solving by thinking reciprocally from the digital to the physical, and back again. This exploratory sculpture course introduces basic digital tools and methods that bring a new dimension to your work and processes, particularly in thinking about digital versus analog making. Using cutting-edge technology, discover the possibilities made available by the laser cutter and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) router and learn how to use these tools in combination with analog making methods and practices to determine the best solution for every problem, creating dynamic works.

Critical Dialog:
What’s so Real About Photorealism?

Anna Katz, Marilyn Minter, John M. Valadez

Tuition $500
Code A0601-22

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER Photorealism involves painstaking emulation, by hand and primarily in paint, of the surface qualities of photographic images. When Photorealism emerged in the late 1960s in Europe and the United States, it was an heir to Pop, owing to its typically banal subjects and snapshot aesthetics, and a cousin of Minimalism, sharing a cool affectlessless and machinic finish. Its anomaly was its commitment to the medium of painting, at the moment of conceptual art’s rise, and further to the realist tradition, in the ceaseless wake of abstraction in the 20thcentury. More recently, artists working in a photorealist idiom have provoked the question of the status of the photograph in contemporary art and in broader cultural understandings of truth and fact. This Critical Dialog program seeks to reexamine Photorealism and to trace its lineages in art of the present day—lineages that have zigged and zagged as the status of the photograph has undergone radical shifts and re-imaginings in the realms of fine art, technology, and everyday life. Topics include trompe l'oeil; the pose; representation of people of historically marginalized identities; visual codes of taste and class; and the permeation of personal cameras in everyday life.

Welding for Teens

Teddy Andriese

Tuition $595
Code S0606-22

Teens learn the exciting fundamentals of Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding, the tools of metal fabrication and also establish a foundation of steel applications in this dynamic weeklong workshop designed for beginners. Students practice setting up tools correctly, workspace preparation and strategies for successful welding practices. The goal of this course is for each participant to create a soundly-welded steel sculpture with a proper finish and to gain a working knowledge of welding, cutting and handling of steel sculpture.
