Sometimes art appears to be the byproduct of weird people. Yes, they are odd, strange...unusual. Out of step with the rest of humanity but walking among us. In this class, we will be exploring the aspects of ourselves that make us unique and using those beautiful eccentricities as a means to making 3D artworks. A wide range of sculptural strategies will be covered to help manifest a series of experiments to demonstrate to the world yet again that most interesting things are done by those who are following their idiosyncratic preferences out onto a limb.
