Books & Paper P Summer Session 5

Books & Paper Summer Session 5
July 19 – August 4, 2020
Elizabeth Alexander
Cast Paper Sculpture

This workshop will be an in-depth exploration of sculpting with a wonderfully versatile material. We’ll cover a variety of techniques for casting paper forms from objects to create seemingly weightless assemblages that can be painted, cut into, collaged onto, etc. We’ll cast with pulp, freshly made paper, and found paper and touch on cutting, forming, assembling, and installation art. We’ll have critiques and group discussions throughout the session as the work develops. Open to anyone who enjoys exploring and experimenting with materials. All levels. Code 05PM

William King Museum (VA), Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (NC), Boston Sculptors Gallery; finalist for Museum of Arts and Design Burke Prize; collections: Crystal Bridges Museum (AR), Mint Museum (NC).
