This one-session class is meant to jumpstart you on making engaging sculptures: how to decide on a design, assemble your materials and objects, and finish and mount them, so they’re both attractive and durable. Bring in your own favorite materials, maybe some found objects, eye-catching weathered wood, or pieces of natural material. You might want to create a free-standing sculpture, wall hanging, mobile, or work for a garden. We’ll discuss your ideas, divulge some tricks of the trade, and demonstrate basic tools and equipment. At the end of the class, you should be able to create sculptures in your space and at your own pace.
Paul Angiolillo has been creating sculptures and functional “art” objects for several decades, in both representational and abstract styles. For many years he studied with master sculptor Joseph Wheelwright in Boston. Paul has shown his works in galleries, art centers, libraries, museum shops (deCordova, Fuller Craft), and other venues, as well as in many outdoor exhibits.
