Multi-Media Sculpture: Experiments in Various Approaches with Milton Teichman
Time & Location
Thanks to the generosity of Milton Teichman, this workshop includes a free membership to Non-members and a discounted enrollment price for Members! In this workshop we will experiment with various approaches to making multi-media sculpture. We will use a range of materials--from the most ordinary (wire, wood, found objects) to the more uncommon (string, fabric, metal foil, Styrofoam). We will attempt to incorporate print or handwriting into our assemblages. We will learn some basic things about abstract design to help us compose our sculpture. We will be inspired by the traditions of Modernism. We will enjoy ourselves. If folks have questions, they can call the museum or Milton directly at 508-896-2395.
