Art for Everyone!

Sculpture

SSA students frequently problem solve with materials in three-dimensions – whether they carve in stone, cast in concrete or plaster, weld metals, construct wooden forms, blow glass, or assemble found objects to create purely sculptural assemblages.

9509 | Sculpture Foundations
Students will learn how to approach creating three-dimensional art from traditional sculpture to surrealism and installation art using a variety of mediums. Studying and borrowing the processes and materials used by an array of artists, students will apply the principles of design as they work with the tools, materials, and skills required in creating sculptural works of art. Students will start with concept drawings and learn to create maquettes as they work out their sculptural ideas. Mig welding, metal fabrication, plasma cutting, mold making, and body casting techniques will be covered. Topics will include interpretive analysis of form and content, traditional and modern methods for making sculpture, and interactive installation art. Independent projects will be encouraged. Class includes most materials; additional materials may be required for individual projects. (No class Nov 24)

9823 | Stop Motion Animation
Ever wanted to explore animation? This class will introduce stop motion animation and cover all aspects of the process, including animation of objects through photography, building flexible armatures and sets, lighting and shadow, shooting with a green screen, editing stop motion sequences in Adobe Premiere Pro, and using video filters and extended animation techniques in AdobeĀ® After Effects. Create stop motion videos and post them on the internet. Contemporary and historical examples will also be discussed to help give a personal voice within the medium. Prerequisite: Some basic experience with digital cameras is necessary (this can include smart phone cameras as well) and basic computer skills. A materials list will be discussed the first class. *Students ages 14 and above may register for this class.
