3-D Art: Sculpture - Ceramics - Fiber Arts

3-D Art

Get your fingers into the earthworks of clay and stone, wood, metal, and fibers in our arts classes in sculpture, ceramics, and fiber arts. These classes open your mind and your body to the experience of multi-dimensional design and the smooth, integrated flow of creativity through the movements of your arms and hands. Sculpt in clay or stone, carve in wood, cast bronze and weld steel in our sculpture studios. Experience traditional loom weaving and non-woven textile processes in classes that explore computer-aided textile design, dyeing, fabric printing, felt and papermaking. Sit at the potters wheel or bench and throw or hand-build artistic and functional pieces of art. Leave your experience with new works and new ways to work.

What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the soul.
- Joseph Addison

I sometimes wonder if the hand is not more sensitive to the beauties of sculpture than the eye. I should think the wonderful rhythmical flow of lines and curves could be more subtly felt than seen. Be this as it may, I know that I can feel the heart-throbs of the ancient Greeks in their marble gods and goddesses.
- Helen Keller
