Defy traditional notions of sculpture in this Soft Sculpture class. Sculpture is art that is three dimensional and while we usually think of materials like clay, wood and stone to create sculptures, the options are endless. In this course you will explore fabric, paper and other pliable materials that can be sewn, glued and stuffed to make three-dimensional objects. Artists for inspiration will include Claus Oldenburg and Sheila Hicks. In conjunction with Soft Sculpture, students will take a fiber arts class for one hour each day. In this class they will hone their skills in things like sewing, embroidery, crochet and also explore fiber and fabric in less traditional ways.
