Ventura College - Sculptural Self-Portraits

Following up our successful cardboard chair project, beginning sculpture students have been busy working on clay self-portrait busts. Not all self-portraits have to be accurate and literal (although they can).  You are more than the sum of your outer skin, and so can your self-portrait.  How do you see yourself?  How do others see you?

Fall 2011 Cardboard Chairs - Ventura College Beginning Sculpture

The VC Beginning Sculpture Cardboard Chair project this semester was another great success. Students did a fabulous jobs creating a personal chair that fits their profile - personal, comfortable, colorful and functional.   The chair, made completely from cardboard, had to support the student's weight.  Mission accomplished!
