S18HS13

The objective of the course is to introduce students with the possibilities of Paper Mache as a medium. Understand and experience working with Paper Mache to create desired forms. Paper Mache is an important material – highly recyclable, eco-friendly, structurally strong and very flexible. It is an economic and strong building material. It gives lots of freedom and flexibility to work with. Paper Mache can be used to make toys, furniture, dolls, masks, boxes, sculptures, hollowed items and much more. I would like students to explore various properties of Paper Mache as a material during the course. During the course we would be exploring different working methods with Paper Mache. Students will enjoy the experience of working with terracotta clay and then taking plaster mould and finally casting in Paper Mache. Also some forms can be created directly with Paper Mache with the understanding of armature.
