PCC non-credit class explores art of sculpture
Photos and Story by James Hill
The art of sculpture is an ancient, three-dimensional art form that uses natural media such as stone or wood to create lasting works of art. If you have always wanted to learn how to make your own sculpture, then now is you chance. This winter Portland Community College will offer a non-credit class designed to expose students to different media and sculpturing styles.
In the non-credit class, Exploring Sculpture, students gain an understanding of sculpture by creating three separate projects in different media: plaster, wood and stone. Instructor Kathryn Thompson will demonstrate various sculpturing techniques and help students find their preferred media. Tools & materials list provided; bring a clean, one-gallon plastic bottle to first class.
The class will meet from 6 to 9 p.m., Tuesdays, Jan. 8 through March 26, in Room MAHB 109, at the PCC Cascade Campus, 705 N. Killingsworth. Cost is $135. For more information, contact PCC’s Community Education office at (503) 978-5143.
