VA15 Virtual: Alternative Sculpting Techniques

This virtual course focuses on a technique called faux ceramics that uses accessible materials and has been reimagined during the pandemic. Faux ceramics is a sculptural technique that combines historical and contemporary methods, comparable to a fusion of paper mâché and air-dry clay. We will develop sculptures together using this non-traditional building method through a series of prerecorded video demonstrations, exciting zoom presentations, and fun class exercises. This course includes live Zoom class sessions and prerecorded content.

*Virtual Course Policy: Students registered for virtual courses are expected to conduct themselves as if participating in an on-site Bemis course. As a virtual course registrant, Bemis asks that you please be aware of your surroundings during virtual class sessions. Ensure your Zoom camera background is simple and clear of any foot traffic, including family members moving in and out of view, bright backlighting, or anything else that would be distracting to fellow students and the instructor. If need be, you can choose to turn off your camera in Zoom and turn it back on when you’re ready.
