Dunmore East School of Art, Saturday March 16th @ 10.00 a.m.
This course is a quick introduction to sculpture, outlining straightforward approaches in putting ideas into 3 dimensions. Starting with an idea, maybe a photo, it leads in a sequence of steps to solid models. From a rough scribble to 3D in modelling clay, then onto a wire support with some; wood, add some glue, paper, fabric, filler, plaster, wire, chicken wire and before long any form or shape can quickly materialize.
This course is open to anyone, and any level of skill, as the emphasis is on turning ideas into 3 dimensional models fast, with simple and easily available materials. Its best that participants wear old clothes as some materials can be a bit messy. Also it is a great help if people coming have some sort of an idea, of what they would like to make before starting. They can then get straight to work without having to lose time pondering and deliberating. This sculpture course is great fun, it is loaded with new ideas, new approaches and challenges.
