The James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History, Wayne State University (WSU) is providing one-day mobile sculpture workshops for participants at various community sites in Detroit, July 20 – 31, 2015. Students from the Carr Center Jazz Ensemble will perform during the workshops.
Workshop participants will learn basic 3-D design fundamentals, create abstract sculptures out of random materials using an assemblage technique, and paint their compositions one color to get a better sense of their compositions.
The workshops will accommodate 10–15 participants, ages 12–18 years old. All materials will be provided by the Department of Art and Art History, WSU.
The sculptures created during the workshops will be collected by the instructor and exhibited at the department’s Art Department Gallery, WSU, September 11–October 23, 2015, and will be returned after the exhibition closes. A public reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, September 11, 5-8PM.
The exhibition will be on view for the community, and for guests who will be attending the Sculpture X Symposium, a symposium hosted by the Department of Art and Art History, WSU, October 9-10, 2015.
