Description

Carve a little piece of magic to wear! Whether it's a charm on a bracelet or a talisman from Japan, a pharaoh's jewelry or a tiny totem from the American Southwest, small sculptures that are worn for protection or to show status are part of many world cultures. Your soapstone or alabaster charm will be incorporated with fiber, beads and leather to create your personal wearable amulet. On the way, we will investigate the history of amulets and talismans through images that will give context to the process. Bring your lunch, a cold drink and your good ideas!

Applies to: AT, Y3

Here is a chance for young artists to emulate the art that exists in nature as they define for themselves the nature of art. Students visit RISD's Edna Lawrence Nature Lab and the RISD Museum in search of animals, plants and other elements of the natural world. They then use the visual forms and artworks they’ve discovered as inspiration for a variety of creative projects. This course develops art and natural science awareness, builds basic art and design skills and encourages young artists to explore a variety of media.

ages 18+ | RISD Campus | 2020/CS-SCLP-3260
6 sessions | 18 contact hours | tuition $365


Description

Explore the unique structural potential of various materials as you develop compelling sculptural objects and large-scale installations. You'll focus on ideation, iterative processes and problem-solving techniques (design thinking). With an emphasis on process over product, you'll be encouraged to take a low-tech, hands-on approach, using readily available materials and techniques. You will learn basic joinery and manipulation techniques for foam, cardboard, paper, string, clay, plastics, wire, salvaged materials and more. You'll experiment with how to combine different materials and in doing so develop a unique 'making' language. You'll culminate the course having produced a series of sculptural forms, installations and functional objects. Class time is comprised of a series of demonstrations and guided short exercises to provide the skills necessary to design, build and develop a multifaceted language within a beginning sculptural practice.
