Description

Can we all agree that the world is crazy these days? Perhaps it’s best to take a cue from the Dada movement and have that reflected in our artwork. Join Carole in creating absurd sculptures! Put disparate objects together in unexpected ways, with a sense of humor and playfulness. This isn’t about fine technique – it’s a chance use simple tools and materials to craft irrational structures (large or small) that amuse yourself, your classmates, and your audience at home. Carole will provide a bunch of silly things, as well as tools, but you are invited to bring items you may wish to incorporate into ridiculous 3-D forms.

Class size 8

Level Beginner and above

Student Supply List
Random objects of any size or material. Thrift shop finds or items from your junk drawer are appropriate here!
A full-size hot glue gun if you have one.
