Explore concepts and techniques of a sculptural practice using cardboard, paper mache, clay, nature, and more! During the week, young artists will play with scale, line shape, texture, and color to create sculptures from observation and the imagination inspired by people, animals, and nature. As a class, we will also work collaboratively on a life-size painted cardboard sculpture. From the real to the fantastical, discover the endless fun of sculpture!
