This workshop will immerse students of all levels into the playful process of Improvisational Sculpture. We’ll take a journey through a series of exercises to help facilitate exploration and experimentation in three-dimensional art making. Build a series of original sculptures, using found materials, cardboard, paper, wood, cloth, and natural materials–all in a supportive environment.
