Students in the 3D Design classes at PBSC are excited for the opportunity to participate in the Yamaha Cares Upcycling Project. The project, supported by the Nat King Cole Generation Hope, gives students recycled guitars, art supplies and the time and space to create unique assemblage sculptures. Using methods of addition, subtraction and construction, 3D Design students work with their professors to learn about not only the history of assemblage and three-dimensional form, but also concepts surrounding narrative and their own personal experience with music. Students will have the learning opportunity to collaborate with Music and Film Departments as well, to share and document the process of making a new aesthetic object out of the old.
In groups of 2-3, teams will decide what kind of materials they would like to use and what the vision of the project is. Planning is an important part of this.. but also using found objects to inform your artistic vision.
We will have music students pop in to play a short musical piece as well as talk about their personal connection to their instrument as a vehicle for creativity.
Hello students! I’m excited to be teaching 3D Design again – we are going to delve into the creative realms of many mediums of contemporary sculpture and 3D Design. We will meet IN PERSON at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 17 to go over everything you need to know.
