Course Description

This hands-on workshop explores basic forms as the essence of abstract sculptural practice. All sculpture begins with the understanding of spheres, tetrahedrons (pyramid) and cubes, which each participant will use as a starting point to build their own abstract sculptures,

A brief introduction will show how basic forms exist in nature, and how sculptors have applied these forms. Using wire frame, wire mesh and plaster bandage, participants will learn how to construct the essence of abstract forms. From that starting point, development of those forms will use repetition, incising of forms, mirroring and more as techniques to expand their personal vision.


* Three basic forms as they exist in nature
* Basic construction techniques
* Diversifying basic forms to explore relationship, rhythm and movement
* Exploration of independent vision
