3-dimensional arts

Art is not just drawing or painting.  There are lots of different three-dimensional arts as well.  At Access Arts we have a variety of classes for all sorts of students.  One-day workshops are also held on a variety of topics.

Found Object Assemblage Sculpture

This class explores the idea that art can be made from (almost) anything.  Old shoes, doorknobs, bottle caps . . . just about anything.  Students are encouraged to scavenge for items that they can reclaim and reuse.  No prerequisites.


In addition to regular classes, we host one-day workshops.  Past 3-Dimensional topics have included Windchimes, Keychains, Basketweaving and more.  See the Workshops page to register for upcoming workshops.

Sculptural Weaving

This course is an opportunity for students to design and create 3-dimensional art pieces, utilizing fiber materials.  Fundamental techniques such as knotless knitting, cord wrapping, crochet and macrame are discussed.  Basic materials are provided, but students are encouraged to incorporate a variety of fibers and found objects as their ideas develop.  No prerequisites.

Adult Handbuilding

This course is for students interested in clay handbuilding techniques and for more experienced wheel-throwing students interested in incorporating handbuilding techniques into thrown forms.  The class covers coil, slab and pinch construction methods and surface decoration techniques.  No prerequisites.
