This studio sculpture course approaches sculpture through a variety of accessible techniques and projects that do not require a great deal of specialized training. This course will introduce students to the art-making practices of wide variety of artists, with a special focus on artists broadly categorized as “self-taught,” as opposed to trained fine artists. The purpose of this orientation is to provide students with an opportunity to as directly as possible tap their creativity and expressive potential, and to encourage students to engage their own unique perspectives, interests, and talents, in the art-making process. Projects range from simple assemblage sculptures to environmental and installation works, and will emphasize working with our hands and basic tools, and using when possible readily available, found, and recycled materials. This course will require an open mind, an ability to collaborate and work with others, a willingness to get your hands dirty, and perhaps a little dumpster diving.
