Ceramics + Sculpture
About this Workshop
Campus: Regis College | Rising Grades: 6,7
Working with clay and other alternative materials—like bark, cardboard, and grass—we’ll sculpt and shape works of art that are fanciful and imaginative. You could figure out how to suspend a wire-and-plastic sculpture so it balances on a folded paper cube. Or “paint” realistic landscapes with special carving tools, glaze, and clay. From learning basic ceramic techniques like pinching and coiling to flexing and manipulating wire and plastic sheets, you’ll discover something even more important: how to express yourself in a whole new way.
Build a miniature movie set—complete with houses, storefronts, and cars—out of clay slabs and etched clay reliefs.
Using found materials, design and create a natural art installation.
Construct a 3D coral reef that would fool a fish and fit in on any ocean floor.
Contemplate and discuss the impact of large-scale sculpture as an art form.
