Winter 2019—Sculpture with Chad Coffman, T 6:30-9:00
New students will explore both the art of constructing sculptural pieces as well as the methods of incorporating sculptural elements into their current work. They will learn how to mimic textures and forms, and how to blend and differentiate them. Through coil building, carving, and slab work, we will construct surface details, low-relief sculptures, and, finally, a free standing, in-the-round sculpture. Returning students will build on these skills through new projects. Whether students are wheelthrowers, handbuilders, or full-fledged sculptors, this class will cater to adding new dimensions to their work. Some experience with clay is best, but beginners are welcome in this class.
You will need some supplies for this class. Beginning students should buy the 630 White Stoneware, others may choose from our list on line. Bring your tools or buy what you need in our shop. You can buy your supplies in person the first night of class or stop by before, if you prefer. If you are new to clay, we can lend some tools until you figure out what you want.
