From the Renaissance to Modern Art, the human figure has long been a source of inspiration to artists. In this class we will explore how artists have approached their depictions of the human body. Using that inspiration, we will create 3-dimensional and 2-dimensional works that all depict some aspect of the figure.
If you like to solve problems and DIY projects, this class is for you. You will use creative thinking skills while getting hands on experience with all kinds of maker tools like the laser cutter, 3D printer, and more.
