07 Jul 2011 SCRAP Workshop: SCRAP Animals w/ Courtney Cerruti
Join us for this full-day workshop of fun to create one-of-a-kind assemblage animals. Courtney will show participants how to fashion an armature and sculpt animal forms out of paper maché. Then embellish them with wacky and fun findings from within the depths of SCRAP. Use papers, metals, woods, fabrics and ephemera of all sorts to create your own unique animal, real or imagined! Your sculpture is only limited to your imagination and is suitable for beginners and advanced students.
