Sculpted, Patterned and Sewn

Aug 26 - 30, 2024

9AM - 5PM

Concept

In this workshop students learn several workflows for translating a handmade clay sculpture into a digital model and then back into a physical object that is augmented, transposed into new materials, changed in scale, and edited in appearance. These workflows are geared toward sculptors with an interdisciplinary approach and an interest in learning fundamentals of 3D design and animation. The workshop familiarizes students with CNC machining, laser cutting, vector plotting machines, 3D photogrammetry, 3D model topology, UV mapping, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk Mudbox, and SculptGL.

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.
