Facilitated Studio Practice: Sculpture

Jan 3 - 21, 2022

Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM*

Concept

Anderson Ranch’s Facilitated Studio Practice approach provides artists the opportunity to work on independent projects while receiving regular one-on-one mentoring and critique sessions with Anderson Ranch artistic staff and interns. Each participant receives an assigned studio space, orientation and access to equipment, as well as five hours of weekly technical guidance in the Ranch’s state-of-the-art facilities.

This program affords artists the experience enjoyed by national and international artists who access our state-of-the-art studios. Participants may expand their practices, take artistic risks, try new media or complete works for exhibition.

Applicants must submit project proposals or portfolios for approval. A limited number of participants will be accepted and rigorous health and safety standards, as well as social distancing requirements, must be followed.

*Studios are open 24 hours a day and on weekends for students enrolled in multiple weeks, with limited use of equipment due to safety requirements. Evening monitoring hours are Tuesdays & Thursdays, 7 – 9 PM.

  • Facilitated Studio Practice winter sessions run January 3-21 and participants may register for one, two or all three weeks.
  • Cost is $1,000 per week. 
  • Private dorm rooms are available at Anderson Ranch for one, two or three weeks for an additional fee; please inquire for details and availability.

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.

Master Class: The Engineer and Madam Bricolage are Lovers

Sheila Pepe

Tuition $1,270
Code S0806-24

In the early 1990s "Bricolage" was heavily referenced as a method of discourse, based on ideas found in the works of French theorists Claude Levi-Straus and Jacque Derrida. Thirty years later the term has become ubiquitous, naming entrepreneurial theory, restaurants, and architecture firms. Lifting small quotes from original texts, Sheila leads a master class in her favorite studio methods of accumulation, construction, and "taking apart and putting- back together," all the while subjecting outcomes to tests of complexity, legibility, and aesthetic resolve. Open to all media from metal to found materials to fabric, this class encourages participants to come with their own set of studio practices and concerns, but to be looking for an opportunity to grow and expand their work.

Creative Reuse

Jean Shin

Tuition $1,250
Code S0907-24

By adopting creative reuse strategies in art-making practices, artists will transform everyday objects and discards into assemblages, sculptures, and installations. When researching a common object’s history, its use, circulation, and disposal, we see the devastating consequences of extractive practices and overconsumption on our planetary health. How can artists instead, use our junk and leftover scraps to hold memory, tell stories, and evoke regenerative possibilities? While salvaging and repurposing materials, artists explore innovative ways to infuse personal meaning, cultural significance, and ecological urgency in their artwork. This workshop is structured around group critiques, individual feedback, and studio time.

Sculpture: Object, Movement, and Installation

Anna Tsouhlarakis

Tuition $1,160
Code S1008-24

Sculpture encompasses a wide range of media that can be light, hurried, heavy, or immobile. Performance can embody a scope of experiences and can be thoughtful, improvisational, and ritualistic. Throughout the week, participants create connections between object, self, and location to explore the possibilities of different combinations of interactions. Participants produce work in varying scales using various materials, including found objects and plaster casts. Connections and experiments between the object and maker are then explored through performance and/or site-specific installation. Finding the balance between object, movement, documentation, and presentation is central to the workshop.
