Students will create three-dimensional projects and learn about the many approaches to the art of sculpture, including assemblage, cardboard hand building, carving‎, casting, modeling, nature sculpture, soft sculpture, and beyond! This class will cover several approaches to working in three dimensions, such as addition (combining different materials to create a form such as as assemblage, or collage of 3D materials), subtraction (removing material from a mass to create the form from an outside-In perspective), substitution (using a mold to shape materials), and manipulation (using malleable materials in ways that can be both additive and subtractive).

Nestor’s work is inspired by the work of pre-Columbian Peruvian Paracas tapestry with a modern understanding which defines his own visual and conceptual vocabulary that emerged through his focus on the point of intersection between visual effect and the meaning of the subject.
