Instructor: Allison Newsome

Course description Explore how totemic or stacked sculpture has been addressed and historically incorporated into architecture and public works – ultimately making multiple components that are then stacked together. These architecturally inspired forms may combine the human figure, animals, fruit and flowers. The surface treatment will focus on using polychrome painting on a white opaque surface with metallic oxides and stains inspired by Della Robbia. This class caters to those students continuing from the Fall semester as well as welcoming new students. The class work will be displayed on the grounds of the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds in Newton, MA. 12 classes/13 weeks.
