Sculpture Methods & Materials: Casting and Moldmaking

Casting and Moldmaking is a second tier hands-on studio course which serves as a comprehensive exposure to innovative casting techniques. In this course, students will be asked to consider the transformative process of casting, and its ability to expand the experience of an artwork through a spectrum of materials and processes. The class will experiment with casting using a range of materials including wax and synthetic polymers such as resin, as well as thoughtfully marrying conventional with unconventional non-art materials. Additional projects and demos will explore simple mold making techniques, and field casting outside of the studio.
