We will use traditional relief woodcarving methods to create contemporary sculpture in this studio course. The course teaches students to express ideas visually using wood as a sculptural medium. To this end, students will learn to observe, measure, sketch, and compose both abstract and representational forms. Students will learn all stages of artistic production relating to relief wood sculpture including species selection, milling, roughing, carving, detailing and finishing. Students will develop their abilities with power tools and hand tools as they establish their own artistic style and subject matter. We will use local walnut, cherry, oak and various softwoods in the studio. Field trips to local studios, museums and gardens will support the studio practice. Students will benefit from a semester spent working with a beautiful and time-tested material – wood is durable, local, and sustainable!
