This term, students will explore the context of creature construction in a series of mixed media sculptural skills based workshops. Over the course of five weeks students complete four "creature" based projects. Each week’s class will begin with a group discussion of the investigation, supported by works on display and reference images, while also drawing parallels to contemporary cultural examples. Each week will conclude with a round table discussion and sharing of work. All materials will be supplied.
Weeks 1 | Paper:
After being shown several paper modelling techniques the class will be expected to produce an animal or creature demonstrating their knowledge of three dimensional space and sculptural elements.
Demonstration artists for week 1: Robert Sabuda, Wolfram Kampffmeyer and Mia Pearlman
Weeks 2| Cardboard:
In this workshop the class will transform into hybrid creatures with the creation of wearable heads/masks. The students shall build off the knowledge and experience gained from the previous week.
Demonstration artists for week 2: Steve Wintercroft, Eugene Paunil, Naum Gabo and tribal masks
Week 3 & 4 | Recycled:
Using plastic bags, recycled materials, sticky tape and paper materials, the students will make a large-scale creature based on their own design.
Demonstration artists for weeks 3 & 4: Kiel Johnson, Josef Mrva, Emily Warren, and Abigail Brown.
Week 5| Natural/Ephemeral:
Skeletons in the garden- the class will use natural elements collected from the gallery grounds to create animal skeletons.
