Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My goal is to attend Penland school of Crafts for an 8- week concentration from 9/24/17- 11/17/17 to learn the fundamental skills needed for MIG, TIG and stick welding as well as other fabrication techniques including plasma cutting and oxygen-acetylene torch uses, which I will then be able to incorporate into my sculptural work. At the end of this class I will use these new skills to produce at least one sculpture that I will then submit for upcoming shows in 2017-2018 and insert into my sculpture portfolio. Gain experience with multiple types of welding and fabrication techniques that I will incorporate into my sculptural and craft work. During my time in class I will start and finish at least one sculpture that will incorporate these new techniques. I will use this new piece in my portfolio and as a future piece for exhibitions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I finished four sculptures using newly learned fabrication and welding techniques that were taught in this workshop.
