This six-week session will draw inspiration from the Ogden Museum’s exhibition Built Sculpture from the Collection and Preservative Force Recent Acquisitions to the Collection. Artists investigated will include Douglas Bourgeois, Lin Emery, Robert Tanner, William Dunlap, Mel Chin and George Dereau. Museum Educator Mikhayla Harrell will be live on Zoom to guide through deep art observation, critical thinking, art making procedures and mindfulness practices.

Students will use a range of materials from found natural organic materials, intertubes, wood, cardboard, paper mache, collage, paint and even strange objects from around the home to construct four outstanding sculptural works of art together.

After you register, you will receive 2 emails: a virtual ticket and an email containing a Zoom meeting link. If you do not receive the email, please make sure to check your junk folder.
