Prerequisite: Foundations in Art
An introductory course that invites students to creatively explore the fundamentals of sculpture. Through subtractive and additive processes, students will develop an understanding of three-dimensional forms. Students will work with a variety of materials from ceramics to found objects. Students will also develop an understanding of how sculpture interacts with its audience and environment. Assignments are structured, but also allow for student choice. While experiencing the art process, students will discover ideas for creative problem-solving and respect for their own creativity and self-expression. Self and group critiques will be used to encourage effective communication as a valuable life skill. Students will draw upon inspiration from past and contemporary artists for projects.
