The Essence of Sculpture

Date: Saturday, September 07, 2013
Time: 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
Teacher: Roderick Smith
Type: Art-Making Workshop

Artist Roderick Smith leads a one-day adult workshop in sculpture following the path of sculptor Constantin Brancusi. Working with polymer clay, participants develop a three-dimensional sculptural piece investigating the notion of the "abstract form." The emphasis is on expressing an emotion or concept in its most essential design.
