Monday Evening Sculpture – with Lee Tribe

Welding Focus

Spring 2019

No class on February 18 – President’s Day

Course Description

Working on a rotational basis, this class works with both steel and clay. We will compare the differences and similarities between these two chosen materials. Both can be hard and soft depending on temperature. Initially we will work in clay from the model, as a common focus, modeling the human head and figure and possible branching out from there. We shall Endeavour to employ the inherent nature of the materials to enhance and enrich the image of the sculpture. As the class proceeds to work in clay I will introduce 2 students at time to the welding room, steel and some basic welding. In rotation each student will have several hours of working in steel and welding. Our goal will be to produce a number of finished sculptures in both steel and clay.

Learning Outcomes

Students will gain a greater knowledge of and ability to work with the two chosen materials, Clay and Steel. We shall endeavor to build works that express the nature of both materials. I expect that each student will produce 6 or more works.
