In this one-evening class, you’ll learn how to create three-dimensional works of art—how to settle on an engaging design, put together objects and materials, and finish and mount them so they’re sturdy and long-lasting. You might bring in an interesting piece of beloved but chipped pottery or found object and turn it into a whimsical sculpture. Or some interesting natural materials, such as seed pods, driftwood, or fronds, could become an eye-catching wall relief. Garden sculptures are also possible. We’ll discuss different ideas, demonstrate many tools for fashioning materials, and reveal tricks-of-the-trade—so you can create attractive and resilient works of art at your own pace and in your own space.
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 Bachelors of Art from Yale University and has exhibited extensively throughout New England.
