During the second half of the week, students will create a sculpture made from papier mache, found-object assemblage, or a combination of both. No previous experience necessary.

Art Elective Credit:

If you take both art workshops, you have the option to earn 0.5 elective credit. To earn this optional credit, you will complete some additional work outside of the workshop hours. The instructor will provide details on the first day of class.
