The Art of Mobile Making - Kinetic Sculptures with Instructor Stephen Lomazzo

Wednesdays - September 10, 2014 to October 15, 2014

Pleasure in movement is as great in our daily lives as is our delight in color or sound. The soaring, swooping flight of a bird, a leaf falling, a flag fluttering, water flowing – all are movements which give us a great deal of pleasure or excitement or peace, according to our moods. A mobile is created for the sake of movement and it is the particular way in which it moves that captures our attention and intrigues us.

Mobiles (kinetic forms) gather their fundamentals in drawing and painting rather than traditional sculpture. After presenting a historical and cultural overview of this thoroughly “modern” art form, the class will explore the relationships between a series of two or three dimensional shapes, which combined in a stylistic approach, will form an artistic abstract composition.

Students will learn the use of: balance, form, color and design, as well as the use of negative space, light and mood. At the end of the course, you will have created a minimum of two mobiles. Students do not need any prior art knowledge to create these pieces of art.

Students need to bring:

  • One pair of needle nose plier
  • One pair of wire cutters
  • One pair of scissors
  • One utility knife
  • Cutting surface

Six week class: $150.00
