Step into the third dimension! Experiment with both additive and subtractive methods of creating sculpture. Explore ceramics, soft sculpture, and mixed media to create abstract and realistic sculptures. Participants will curate an exhibition of both individual and collaborative projects.
Participants will be encouraged to develop their individual style and skills using a variety of drawing and painting media. They will create their own artist portfolio, sketch in the galleries, and complete large-scale drawings and paintings in order to construct a cohesive body of work. The group will explore influences from historical and contemporary art, using the museum galleries, local artists, and artist portfolios as references.
