This course is designed to engage students in the exploration of contemporary sculpture focusing on the conceptual weight of materials matched with the technical capacity to render in non-traditional sculptural mediums ranging from fiber and textiles to found materials. Contemporary Sculpture is possibly the widest of all art forms with its envelopment of any existent material and this course will explore numerous approaches to informing sculptural work with the capacity to carry meaning through the materials and methods employed.
SRISA studio courses will have personal and course materials to be purchased in Florence. Unless otherwise specified there is no need to bring consumable supplies with you. On the first day of class your professor will inform you of materials needed and where to get them in Florence.
