La Veta School of the Arts Classes
Kinetic Sculpture: (Lab Fee $40) $150 Kenny Schneider
learn how natural forces such as wind, gravity and hand movement are used in the creation of art. It is not just bridge and airplane designers who are concerned about how forces interact with objects, but artists as well. You will create your own kinetic sculptures by identifying and capitalizing on these nature forces. Must have some familiarity with hand and power tools.
