Adults: Sculpture Class - Clay and Beyond!

BEG/INT/ADV     

In this class we will explore hand building techniques with emphasis on creating sculpture (figurative and abstract). We will be planning and executing our sculptures with the goal of expressing an intention, concept, or idea. In this process we will discuss form, texture and finishing techniques beyond standard glazing options (oxides, alternative surfaces). A portion of the class will explore a mixed media approach using paper, felted wool or objects found in nature. This class is suitable for intermediate-advanced students.
