Would you like to add movement to your artwork? What if you could make an object that mimics the flapping wings of a bird, a flower blossoming or a ball bouncing? Why imply movement in your work when you can actually make it work! In this class we will explore the transformative power of kinetic motion. Whether you are interested in jewelry or sculpture, this class will offer a unique
perspective on how to generate movement in your artwork. Students are invited to bring their own ideas, materials and projects to class but will also be exposed to new project ideas and methodologies specific to kinetic mechanisms.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
