Small Scale Sculpture: Welding in Miniature
Section A Meets 1/23/2013 to 5/1/2013
from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM.
This hands-on course, geared for the artist, jeweler, architect or designer, introduces the principles of three-dimensional thinking through small scale sculptural processes. Students use metal as the primary material to investigate a variety of techniques in both steel and non-ferrous metal. The safe and proper methods of oxyacetylene torch welding and soldering, as well as various forming and finishing techniques, are covered. Students may create projects as maquettes for larger works not yet realized, as wearable objects, or as diminutive sculptures in their own right. Emphasis is placed on revealing the unique expressive potential of sculptural forms in metal and gaining creative insight into the metalworking process.Note: No class on March 20.
