Basic Sculpture


A hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of contemporary mixed media sculpture through woodworking, welding, mold-making, bronze casting and 3D printing.  No prior experience is required or expected.  Cultivate awareness through making, reading and discussing the unique roles sculpture plays in the broader social world.  Become a more thoughtful, accountable and empathetic human being by exploring your interiority, your biases, your cultural preconceptions and the collective limits of your personal philosophy through working with your hands and the unique way of knowing that is sculpture.  You will get dirty.
