Sculpture and Performance

Aug 1 - 5, 2022



Sculpture is a wide-ranging medium 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 and self to explore the possibilities for combinations of interactions. Using various materials including found objects, plaster casts and wood, objects are produced in varying scales. Connections and experiments between the object and maker are then explored through performance. Finding the balance between object, movement, documentation and presentation are at the center of the workshop.

Join Waitlist for Sculpture and Performance


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.
