Special Topics in Art: Forts, Sanctuaries, and Secret Shelters (AR5560.02)

June 16th, 2010 by Bridget

July 26 – 30, 9:00 – 4:30 with guest Artist, Andy Moerlein

Students will embark on a guided sculptural exploration of previously unshared truths using natural and man made media.  In this hands on workshop, we will probe the concept of revelation and public exposure as contrasted with the deeply personal and confidential.  A variety of media  ( plastics, fabrics, and paints) and natural materials  – ( saplings, limbs, rocks, gravel, and shells) will be used to evoke discoveries during the model making process. Each participant will develop a model after which teams will work together to realize selected designs on a larger scale. The course will be held both indoors and outdoors on location in the surrounding environment.
