LL Odette Artist in Residence /Intensive Sculpture Workshop 2013
The Intensive Sculpture Workshop is an advanced course for senior students focused on sculptural practices. Students propose and create an independent project / body of work under the guidance of a sculpture faculty member and an artist-in-residence. The workshop structure provides a unique mentorship opportunity where students have reciprocal exchanges with professional Canadian and/or international artist(s). Both the faculty and artist-in-residence provide feedback and in-progress critiques of student work. This year’s visiting artist is Peter von Tiesenhausen.
