Sculpture and found objects is the art of transforming raw or discarded material into fantastic imaginative art pieces. What found objects and recycled materials can transform into a city block? From towering architecture filled with robot-citizens to wild alien plants, we will draw inspiration from Douglas Coupland’s Future City to create our own individual city blocks of sculpture that become a whole cityscape.
Next up we will talk about found and created objects as art collections, creating out own modern Curiosity Cabinets. Make your own wild Sculpey animal to feature in your Curiosity Cabinet! Create a tiny set of books to fill its shelves! Add in magic objects contained in tiny glass jars! We will be writing descriptions of our individual collections and adding them to the back of every Cabinet of Curiosities.
Artist Instructor: Natalie Draz
Our full day program schedule consists of daily sketching exercises, 2hr morning and afternoon studio sessions, and various outdoor activities. We believe an important part of the artistic process is having a good mental and physical balance. Each day we will be going outside (weather permitting) to experience our neighbourhood and how it can inspire creativity! Our camp takes place in our ARTiculations Studio.
What to bring:
-A full lunch, reusable water bottle and 2-3 snacks (nut free)
-Clothes for getting messy!
