Introduction to Sculpture

Taught by Michael Lee
February 23, 2019, 10 am-12 pm





This introduction to sculpture class will teach you some basic techniques to give you a starting point in dimensional art. This introductory class will focus primarily on clay as the medium. Topics to be covered include, (but may not be limited to); artist & engineer, wire & armatures, volume, air dry clay, polymer clay, balance & mounting, surfacing, and using the grid." "I love art but, I am not an artist.” As an art teacher, I hear this unfortunate statement from so very many students when they begin a class. My message to them and anyone else who feels this way is this- It is not up to you to decide if you are an artist. It is up to those that appreciate your art. You have the capacity to create amazing things, come learn how to begin a journey into the captivating world of sculpture!

As a member of the Art and Digital Media faculty he teaches in the areas of drawing, sculpting, 3D modeling, graphic design, animation and game design.

About the Instructor: Beverly Perkins received her B.F.A. in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from 1986 The Portland School Of Art. Her concentration was in Hallowware until 1987 when her first job as a jeweler was solely making jewelry by hand, ie: soldering, forming, forging, stone setting, and designing jewelry. She has also worked on restoring estate jewelry. Beverly is a certified Diamondtologist from the Diamond Council of America. Beverly has been in the jewelry business for 31 years, and has worked for several major companies.

Her love for music, led her to award winning Trumpet status and she correlates this combinination in her jewelry, metalsmithing, painting and photography by best quoting the words of her favorite painter Wassily Kandinsky. "Color is the key. The eye is the hammer. The Soul is the piano with its many chords. The artist is the hand that, by touching this or that key, sets the soul vibrating automatically. "
