This course promotes imagination, creativity, and art production. It explores formal concerns of composition, materials, and scale, as well as issues related to content, meaning, and interpretation, and their application to both words and images. Students begin by making smaller three-dimensional works and progress toward larger, more complex individual projects. Children will work with wide range of materials (including clay, papier mache, wood blocks, cardboards, found objects, discarded materials). They will also explore works by sculptors including Louise Nevelson, Suzanne Duchamp, Hanna Hoch, Joseph Cornell, Isa Genzken, and other contemporary artist pushing the boundaries.
