ArtTrax: Sculpture III

Bemis ArtTrax is a new curriculum created to provide equitable and accessible pathways to the arts. ArtTrax courses introduce the fundamental concepts of painting, drawing, and sculpting through a series of engaging exercises. Emphasis is not on producing finished works of art, but rather on developing a basic skillset through practice and repetition. No prior knowledge or experience in the medium is needed/expected for level I classes. The courses then proceed sequentially, each level building upon what was previously presented. Ages 16-Adult
