Course Description:

3D Mixed Media with Forms Course including 2 types of foam, wire, acrylic and found objects with Bonny Leibowitz

This course is all about materials and ways to combine them into 3-D objects. We'll be building forms with wire, acrylic, a spray foam and a two-part foam in various combinations, found objects and other optional materials. This course includes a talk and Power Point of artists working today with various materials and installations in exciting ways and we'll be winding it all up with a few tips on hanging the work from the ceiling or attaching to a wall. During the course, I'll be speaking with each participant individually to flush out ideas and discuss ways of moving forward.

Supply list:

It’s smart to wear a mask and gloves for some of these processes and to have good ventilation. A respirator mask is the best protection.
