In this intermediate level metalworking class, students will be introduced to the work of modern and contemporary metal sculptors.  Students will be guided through the process of design, layout, fabrication, and finish of welded steel sculptures, and will then produce a single, dynamic metal project. Various metalworking techniques will be covered including fitting, hot and cold forming of sheet and bar stock, welding, and riveting as a design and functional element. Several finishing options will be presented. Students will be encouraged to experiment in the design phase and a high quality of craftsmanship and execution will be expected.

Full attendance is mandatory to complete the project and an additional 6-10 hours per week outside of class will be required in the metal shop and/or 3-D studio.
