Our Sculpture Classes

Do you like to create real objects with your hands? Do you wish to wish to bring your ideas to life? Or you are the type that wants to take ideas off the pages of papers and translate them to actual physical objects that can be seen, felt, and touched? Then sculpture is the thing for you.

We can say that sculpture is more technical than most other areas of art. This is because beyond the development of ideas; you need a suitable design. Even more, after this, you now have to translate the ideas and design into a physical object. To do this, you need a combination of tools, materials, and core technical knowledge.

As a result of the above, it is not usually advised that you take short courses or mere technical workshops to engage in sculpture works. You may need core technical knowledge, which you will have to derive through a thorough course. Thus, we have outlined semester classes for sculpture.

We have to note that sculpture is quite a wide area, with many aspects and areas. There are quite many divisions of Sculpture work and craft. Most of them are mostly unrelated. Then, the materials you may need for them are also far from similar. These areas include ceramics, metal works, 

More often, you have to pick just one or very few of the different areas. You are advised not to try to go for all the areas – especially not at the same time. In essence, you should gain domain knowledge and mastery of one before moving on to the next, if you choose to pick another sculpture type.

Why Sculpture?

Maybe you are wondering, “why sculpture?” Why should you dedicate your time, mental, and other resources to learning and mastering sculpture? We quite understand this dilemma, and we are here to help you answer that question.

Skills and Personal Development

Sculpting is a skill that involves several other skills. First, to produce sculpture work, you have to develop ideas in your head. You have to build up those ideas to an extent where you can present those abstract ideas in a semi-concrete format in the form of a design. You then have to see this design transform into a concrete object.

This entire process is complex, but the process builds in you many hard and soft skills. For one, you develop the ability to think critically; you develop the capability to develop ideas, critique them. You also get to know how to transform abstract things into the actual format. Then, there are project development and management skills.

Functionality

With your sculpting skills, you get to develop highly functional and useful products. Whether it is ceramic, or metal, or wood, or fabric, you get to make products that people will use and appreciate.
