ARTS212 : Sculpture and 3-D Design

A lecture/studio course on the fundamentals of sculpture and on its viability as a means of artistic expression and exploration. Approach is through tactile and visual perceptions, using a variety of materials and techniques. Sculptural issues studied are the recognition and construction of space and form, scale, weight, balance, organic and geometric qualities, modalities, transformations and symbolic meaning. Both relief and 3-dimensional (freestanding) forms are explored through a series of problems, using modeling, carving and casting techniques for construction.
Students are responsible for cost of instructional art materials and supplies beyond those directly covered by lab fees.
