In this one-session class, you’ll learn the how to create engaging and resilient sculptures: how to settle on a design, assemble objects and materials, and finish and display them–so they’re attractive and long-lasting. You can bring in any materials: an interesting piece of pottery, weathered wood, or other found objects, or engaging natural materials, such as seed pods or pieces of natural wood. Free-standing, wall hanging, mobile, and garden sculptures are all possible. We’ll discuss your ideas, reveal many “tricks of the trade,” and demonstrate basic tools and equipment for working with 3-D art–so you’ll be able to create attractive sculptures 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 Bachelor’s of Art from Yale University and has exhibited extensively throughout New England.
