In this one-session class, you’ll learn many of the basic techniques for creating 3-D works of art, including how to create an engaging design, how to assemble materials, and how to finish and display them. A handsome old wooden bowl with a chip or crack in it, for instance, might become a whimsical piece of freestanding art. Or some eye-catching natural materials or objects could be transformed into a wall relief. Garden sculptures are also possible. The instructor will discuss ideas for your projects (you can bring in some favorite materials or objects), while demonstrating various tools, equipment, fixatives, and other tricks-of-the-trade for creating attractive and resilient works of art. The goal is to provide you with basic skills to work independently in your own space and at your own pace.
Paul creates works of art that are both timeless and contemporary, universal and unique often trying to incorporate opposites: abstract/representational, rustic/refined, or whimsical/thoughtful. Paul has a Bachelor’s of Art from Yale University and has exhibited extensively throughout New England.
