Sculpting from Nature
About Sculpting from Nature
In the spirit and style of British sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy, venture into nature and source materials for your very own sculptures. Then capture them in a photograph! Explore principles of design and spend the beginning of each class session providing and receiving constructive feedback. Enjoy some fresh air while joining a community of sculptors.
