What's Included

Sat & Sun, Apr 1, 2, 8, 9 from 9:30-5:30; Mon, Apr 10 from 9-1 Small Bronze Sculpture Instructor: Travis Ogden Prerequisite: None Class Duration: 40 Hours In this much asked for 5 day workshop, Travis Ogden will be guiding students on developing and building a table top sculpture (or smaller) out of wax that will be cast in bronze. Students will have the opportunity to explore and become familiar with using wax to model into 3D designs of their choice. Proper use of the various tools and manipulation of the wax material will be emphasized. Consideration of construction techniques and aesthetic choices will be ongoing during this exciting workshop. On the final day of the 5 day workshop, time will be spent presenting your finished wax sculpture to a local casting foundry (in Denver) for casting it in bronze. At that time a representative of the foundry will give students a tour of the casting facility, answer questions, discuss pricing, finishing and patina options and mold making. Students will then leave their wax sculpture at the foundry to be cast in bronze and will pick it up later when the foundry lets you know when it will be ready. Students attending this amazing workshop should complete a wax sculpture ready to be cast during this 5 day period.
