Spend a week exploring a variety of hands-on, cost-effective sculptural processes and materials applicable to both the beginner or advanced artist and educator. Through demonstration and personal material manipulation participants will explore new and innovative methods of using the design process to activate space in both studio practice and art curriculum. This course has been specifically designed with the needs of K-12 and college educators in mind. Each project is designed with a full canvas module that includes artists to research, writing prompts, grading rubric, tutorial videos, and project examples.
