Saturdays, October 16 – November 13. 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.
Using a hands-on approach this class will take you through the basics of creating three-dimensional forms using a “reductive” (carving) process. We will cover the different “levels” of three-dimensionality “low-relief,” “high-relief,” “half-round” and “full-round” sculpture forms. We will be working with Activa Art Plaster, it mixes easily, is carvable, and takes exceptional detail. Its surface is super white, but it is denser than plaster of Paris, has superior working qualities and is non-toxic. We will be using utility knife kits for carving. (These materials are included in the cost of the class). For your personal safety you will need to provide protection, during the carving portion of the class, that protects your eyes as well as an appropriate mask (respirators are not necessary) for your nose and mouth.
