Sculptural Forms

You will explore a range of three-dimensional working methods starting with simple studies of organic and geometric forms, culminating in basic figure and animal shapes. Each piece will be sculpted in clay and fired at the end of the semester. You can purchase clay at Fleisher and drop off your finished work at Fleisher to be fired. No prior experience necessary.
