SCULPTURE COURSES

ART120 Sculptural Design
An introduction to 3-D design, techniques and an exploration of concept development and expression in sculpture. The study of volume and spatial relationships through modeling, casting, carving, and construction using three- dimensional concepts and media.

Includes visual literacy and critical analysis, art elements explored through creative problems, range of media, approaches to three- dimensional design, verbalization of visual perceptions, basic sculptural design lab procedures, and content.

Techniques Include:

  • wood assemblage
  • metal assemblage
  • mixed media assemblage
  • plaster mold making/casting

Concepts Explored:

  • non-representational /non-objective content
  • abstraction content exploration
  • readymade/ object exploration
  • materials exploration
  • interactive/site installation exploration

 

ART123 Lost Wax Sculpture Casting
Metal casting for sculpture using the lost wax ceramic shell process. Students develop individualized projects for casting

Techniques Include:

  • wax working
  • mold making
  • metal pouring
  • tig welding
  • metal finishing

Concept Possibilities:

  • representational
  • non-representational
  • abstraction
  • mixed media
  • interactive/kinetic
  • site installation

 

ART220 Sculpture
An exploration of sculptural issues including object, interactive/kinetic and installation/site based work. Students explore individual creative direction.

Techniques Include:

  • casting/mold making
