Demonstration by Scott Kinney. Scott is a mixed-media artist who uses soccer balls in his sculptures. While studying art at Azuza Pacific University he also played soccer and brought the two worlds together through a series of sculptures that used the soccer balls as part of his design. His work was featured in The Inland Empire Magazine in the September 2018 issue. He will demonstrate sculpture showing his design and technique.
