Class Description

Are you looking for a fun, creative way to spend a Sunday afternoon? Do you want to learn how to make sculpture using disassembled computers and recycled imagery?

Join me while I share my unique method of creating bold, dynamic sculpture. We will be following in the tradition of Picasso, the Surrealists, Louise Nevelson, and Joseph Cornell, who all used found objects in very different ways. You will fall in love with the process of taking apart technology and seeing the variety of incredible and inspiring shapes and materials. You will gain skill in construction and assemblage.
