American Academy of  Fine Arts provides basic sculpting skill class for K-5 students at Medina Elementary school. Sculpture, a 3D art, lives in the world with us, sharing space in our 3D experience. In its very essence, 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.

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” – Pablo Picasso

We believe that the ability to sculpting 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 emphasis of 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 occur 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 sculpture both for reference and inspiration. Students will then flex their new perspective to create their own masterpiece.
