Inanimate objects have been a subject for artists throughout history. This five-week class will begin with students constructing their own collection of still life objects using everyday materials like paper and cardboard and simple techniques like papier-mâché. These 3D objects will serve as a springboard for drawings, collages, paintings, and more sculptures. Exercises will focus on playing with form, color, composition, and creating a conversation between 2D and 3D art. We will see how far we can push our work, energized by the process of making our own subject matter. Slide shows of the work of modern and contemporary artists will supplement the exercises. Meetings will be on Zoom, and work will be shared and critiqued on the online platform, Padlet. Please note that in order to have two full weeks for constructing our objects, there will be no class on Thursday, May 2nd.
