NEW Metal + Figure = Sculpture

August 11, 2014 - August 15, 2014

An intensive and exciting course introducing the necessary skills to create fantastical, large metal sculptures. Parallel to the tools and techniques taught will be a creative lean towards making sculpture based on the human figure. Come visit Vermont for the weekend, challenge yourself to a creative burst with welded steel sculpture! We will cover basic welding and forging as well as some informative aspects of creating figurative sculpture!

Activities to include:  Working from the model, drawing and making paper models, Discussions of traditional techniques and taking ideas from these sessions to transform them into metal “projects.”  Daily demonstrations will present different metal working techniques.  Experimentation with the figure and its very personal meaning will be encouraged.
