This course introduces soft sculpture and the metaphoric power and possibilities it offers for contemporary artistic expression. Developing their creative voice, participants reimagine a hard object through soft materials, working towards a large-scale final project. Participants will explore the design process through research, sketching, experimentation, and in-class critiques. Demonstrations will include a range of techniques, including: hand sewing, flat patterning, armatures for soft forms, and surface treatments such as embroidery, applique, wrapping, and painting.

Drawing from the Collection is a way to explore and develop your research-based drawing practice, which will inform and inspire the creative process no matter your profession or experience level. The class will help refine how you see and will allow you to explore, learn from, and inspire your practice. Students in this class will explore unique collections in the Twin Cities through observational drawing on location. Beyond the still life, students will have the opportunity to create studies of a variety of objects and ephemera.

A brand new offering, this class is designed to be an opportunity for students to explore their own individual creative goals with the support of an experienced instructor while working in MCADs expansive light-filled painting studio. Receive feedback on skills and technique and help with concept development as you develop a body of work such as abstract, landscape, still-life, or figure painting, and/or resolve unfinished work. Your colleagues will be working on their own projects but will touch base regularly for peer critiques to gain helpful feedback.
