Constructions: Melding of 2D Painting and 3D Sculpture with Jim Peters

August 30- September 3 | Monday-Friday, 10-2pm | 5 Sessions | $380 for members, $400 for non-members

This workshop will investigate the integration of two and three dimensional art making in a workshop environment. Because of the nature of the “workshop” participants can work on/concentrate in any area they desire, in representational or abstract modes. Students will receive a materials list, and I will bring tools and some of the harder to get materials.
