Sculpture Marathon – IN-PERSON: with Sarah Peters & Maud Bryt

Course Full – to join the waitlist, please email Records & Operations Manager Jessica McDaniels jmcdaniels@nyss.org.

Course Description

This Marathon will focus on making sculpture through the lens of art history. Work will be generated through research and filtered through the artist’s intuitive response to materials and form. Beginning with the foundational materials of plaster and clay, students will explore sculpture through sequential movements — growing an artwork through considered shifts in form. Students will alter the sculpture step by step with additional materials, including (but not exclusively) found objects, paper mache, cardboard, and textiles. These additions will explore and expand on the original form, and/or can be a catalyst for a series of new sculptures. The objective is to join intuition and imagination to the properties of sculpture — volume, negative and positive space, shape, line, color, closed and open surface form, balance, proportion, scale and construction — and develop the skill of generating new ideas from existing work.
