Have you ever wished you could pull your artwork off the page and make it stand up? In this class, you will have the opportunity to sketch in three-dimensions and to build stable structures from your imagination. We will look to the external landscape of architecture and natural forms for inspiration. Demonstrations on cutting, bracing, and bending wood as well as attaching, twisting, and braiding wire will be given throughout the week. We will also consider ways to add movement, balance, and tension to the works. Assignments will be given to those who wish for a starting point, but students who prefer to work on their own ideas will be free to do so. Everyone will start with exercises to play with the materials, learn how to attain structural integrity, and to shake up the possibilities. Deep play will be the order of the day.
