Learn how to create a sculpture influenced by Louise Nevelson (1899-1988). Nevelson is known for her monochromatic wood assemblages. During this workshop, students will find treasures on the street, at the beach, in the garbage, and even in their closets. This style of sculpting is a great way to develop a visual narrative piece and/or push the basic elements of design – negative and positive space, shape, form, surface, etc.. Techniques will include nailing, stapling, wire wrapping, threading, chemical bonding, liquid nails, cold connections, and painting. This workshop is designed to start a sculpture, depending on intricacies and number of pieces in various segments determines completion.

All Levels Welcome
Location:
395 Seabrook Road - Studio F
Instructor:

The workshop, taught by working sculptor Eduardo Gomez Rojas, will explore various techniques to create a “patina” on fired, clay sculptures. This 2- day workshop is directed at students who have finished pieces in fired clay and would like help in putting a patina onto the piece to have a finished work. This also includes students who may not be happy with a particular patina and would like to consider modifying it. The discussion will include technical as well as esthetic reasons to select a specific patina technique as well as hands-on help to apply it. Students can bring as many pieces as they want, but we suggest they inform the school how many they have at sign up to ensure there are sufficient supplies.
