Sculptor, Artistic Director Leon Gallery, and Teaching Artist Eric Robert Dallimore will be joining Denver Public Library for an upcoming workshop focusing on building our own maquettes using simple tools such as paper, cardboard, and tape. The workshop is inspired by contemporary artists like Richard Serra, Lee Ulfan, Bernar Vernet, and the visual aesthetics of Ikebana. This 1.5 hour workshop will explore simple paper cutting and paper folding techniques as a way for participants to begin exploring line, space, composition, and form. We will imagine our paper as an uncomplicated study of much more rigid materials used in public art, such as steel, concrete, and even wood.
Paper (thicker is better, but simple printer paper will suffice)
Tape (regular scotch tape works well!)
Cardboard (a cereal box or any other rigid surface will work)
Alternative/Additional supplies (not necessary for the class, but could be great materials to work with…you never know!): string, push pins, metal wire, and glue.
