Take a journey through the art of assemblage and build-up as sculptural processes.
Making Sculpture from Found Objects is a journey through the art of assemblage and build-up as sculptural processes. It is all about re-purposing objects either for their inherent unique content or their visual form, or both. Students will learn the many ways of joining including: use of different glues, riveting, bolting, welding, brazing, sewing, etc. Students will learn various joining techniques and methods of pulling disparate forms together into a unified sculptural object. Making sculpture from found objects can be a great way to achieve beautiful or significant art forms with a minimum of costs. It is particularly good for a school or camp program operating with a low budget. The goal will be to create a finished work ‘in the round’ or ‘in relief’.
Limit 8 students, ages 16 and above.
Students should bring found objects, any material.
