Radical Sculptures: June 15-19; 9:30-3:00
AM: Giant Creature Paper Mache Sculptures Create a life-size sculpture of a person, animal or creature in this camp that is sure to be messy! Using chicken wire as a base, you will develop an armature for your sculpture. You’ll sculpt the form using cardboard, paper and masking tape. These life-size sculptures will be covered with plaster strips to create a strong exterior that you’ll then paint and embellish.
PM: Clay Sculptures & Raku Ceramics Take your pottery to new levels in this class that will teach you new hand building techniques such as creating an armature, proportions and sculpting forms. You will create a complex figure or animal sculpture inspired by the Mayan or Aztec cultures and an abstract sculpture inspired by modern art. You’ll also learn alternative glazing and firing techniques such as Raku outdoor firing, sgrafitto and etched surfaces to finalize your ceramic sculptures. Finally, hand-paint some bisque-ware tiles to sell at the Creative Kids Artist Market at the end of the summer.
