Sculpture: Basics of Creating Three-Dimensional Fo
A Vita Institute for the Arts Course

Add to your calendar
Date: October 16, 10:00 am-12:00pm
Continues Until:
Location: Gunnison Arts Center
Details: Sculpture: Basics of Creating Three-Dimensional Forms Saturdays, October 16 - November 13. 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. Using a hands-on approach this class will take you through the basics of creating three-dimensional forms using a “reductive” (carving) process. We will cover the different “levels” of three-dimensionality “low-relief,” “high-relief,” “half-round” and “full-round” sculpture forms. We will be working with Activa Art Plaster, it mixes easily, is carvable, and takes exceptional detail. Its surface is super white, but it is denser than plaster of Paris, has superior working qualities and is non-toxic. We will be using utility knife kits for carving. (These materials are included in the cost of the class) For your personal safety you will need to provide protection, during the carving portion of the class, that protects your eyes as well as an appropriate mask (respirators are not necessary) for your nose and mouth. Instructor: Don Seastrum. Cost: $190.00. A minimum of 5 and a maximum of 8 will be required to hold the class. To protect those in the class all students must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to participate in this class.
