Is it a plaything? Sculpture? Nostalgia? A Product? Art toys exist at the center of a unique Venn diagram.

Each student in this class will develop an original limited edition art toy. We will cover toy fabrication, character design, material selection, packaging design, and art toy culture.

The class will be fabrication heavy, there will be weekly assignments, and a final project.

7 week class, 2 credits.

 

Safety Requirement:  You MUST attend a tool safety session in the shop before class begins.  Even if you are an experienced fabricator, everyone is required to take a safety session if they are using the shop (applies to both 1st and 2nd years).
