Advanced Sculpture

Advanced Sculpture: Oxy + MIG

 (6) 3hr classes learning a variety of sculpture techniques in an art school-styled class with critique and discussion

You asked, we deliver.  A semi-new sculpture class using the oxyacetylene torch and the MIG welder together.

We’ll draw inspiration from the work of established steel sculptors like David Smith, Richard Serra, and Antony Gormley.  This class will run more like a class in art school, with slides, discussions, and exercises on sculptural concepts like:

  • Positive and negative space
  • Mass versus lightness
  • Construction methodology/armatures

So if you’re a professional artist or you have no idea what any of those terms mean, we’ll teach you and you’ll learn to better use the MIG welder, learn some new building processes, and gain a greater appreciation for established steel sculptors
