9AM-5PM

Concept

The innovation of 3-D printing has opened the doors for artists and designers to find new ways to access and develop built environments, architecture and multiple objects that create bold impact. This socially driven workshop considers how technologies, design, interaction and formal concerns help to aid and give agency to the intervention with, and disruption of, the consequences of existing societal and physical barriers. Creative thinking is encouraged as the basis for finding ways to use objects and constructs to enable new forms of consciousness.

This class is in the second year of a three year program. Please contact Liz Ferrill for more information. lferrill@andersonranch.org.

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.

Sculpting Wood

Hugh Hayden

Tuition $975
Code W1005-21

Consider the origins of material. Consider the tree as a central element of form. It can be easy to disassociate milled lumber from it’s true source, but in this unique introductory woodworking workshop, students start with locally salvaged tree limbs and branches and learn to mill their material into lumber that maintains some natural characteristics. We explore and embrace the formal qualities of the wood in conjunction with individuals’ conceptual interests to create a small functional object or sculptural carving. Demonstrations cover jointing, planing, and other stationary machine use, as well as power carving techniques. Join us for a week of experimentation and play with trees.

Make; Matter; Meaning

Gabriela Salazar

Tuition $1,095
Code D1011-21

Challenge convention and broaden the spectrum of materials in this provocative workshop that encourages participants to see the familiar with new eyes and a fresh take on content and form. Students examine their physical surroundings as well as the materials of their daily lives, parsing their value—in both utility, personal sentiment and cultural context—and come to understand them in new ways. Reassembling, repurposing, recombining, relocating, annotating and deconstructing are all process filters through which one pushes materials to communicate their histories and properties.
