Gallery: Life-casting at Sheridan College
About 150 high school students from Wyoming and Montana were on the Sheridan College campus Thursday, April 11, for Art Intensive at Sheridan College. The free event introduced students to Sheridan College programs with fun, hands-on activities in the studios and classrooms of the Whitney Center for the Arts.
Sheridan College faculty and students led participants through several sessions, each showcasing a different artistic method. Activities included life-casting, relief printing, screen printing t-shirts, creating cyanotypes, raku firing, and collaborative drawing. Students rotated through the different stations throughout the day.
Life-casting is the process of creating a three-dimensional copy of a living human body, through the use of molding and casting techniques.
