Build sculptures that challenge our ideas of scale and strength by experimenting and playing with materials that stick, tie, and attach. Investigate the different ways you can use items such as tape, glue, magnets, velcro, snaps, and string. What will you discover and how will you surprise yourself and others?

This interactive class is limited to 10 students. Register below. You will receive the zoom details via email at least one day prior to the first class.

Setting up:
A studio is a designated space where an artist creates. It holds the artist’s special tools and materials and helps the artist feel inspired and safe. Remember, every home, family, and artist is different…so all studios will look different!
