Class Description: Using assorted natural and household objects as well as other sculptural materials, participants will create their own portrait. The images that they create will consist of found objects that individual students are attracted to and may connect with out of the array of three dimensional objects, and sculptures will be created by employing not only realism, but abstract and symbolic principals as well. Students may choose to create either a free-standing sculpture, or one that could be hung on a wall.
