Week 7 STart (July 30-August 3):

Social Sculpture, Clay, Thingamakids

Social Sculpture / Reduce Reuse Refurnish !! We will explore balance, weight, and aesthetics to construct unusual furniture out of used cardboard. By the end of the week we will have a banquet using the objects we’ve made. Artist: Selena Matranga

CLAY Students will first learn about basic methods and techniques of hand-­‐building clay sculpture, like coil, slab, pinch, and free-­‐form. They will also learn on how to use molds and stamps on clay, and finally how to bind parts to make a good structure for their work. Sessions will emphasize student practice in which they will conceive, sculpt, and paint a sculpture of their own, utilizing the techniques they’ve learned.
