American Academy of  Fine Arts provides basic sculpting skill classes for K-5 students at Clyde Hill Elementary school. Sculpture, a 3D art, lives in the world with us, sharing space in our 3D experience. In its very essence, the sculpture provides a physical platform for the expression of our ideas and thoughts. It has marked our history, recording our evolving humanity with form, shape, and material.

Clay Figurine

We believe that the ability to sculpt is an inherently human trait. It is just a matter of honing it to a specific craft. We will offer step-by-step instruction with an emphasis on modeling, especially how the material we use, our approach and tacit assumptions, our individual point of view, and the progressive observation from more than one angle that occurs during the process of work. Student artists will be introduced to the principles of sculpture and techniques for construction. We will look at a wide variety of sculptures both for reference and inspiration. Students will then flex their new perspectives to create their own masterpieces.

Grades: K-5.
