ART 1510 - Beginning Sculpture



Casting, Carving, Construction, and Steel Fabrication. This course introduces students to the fundamentals of sculpture, concept development, and safe, productive working habits. Students will learn basic mold making and metal casting techniques, fundamental wood construction, carving, and essential steel fabrication. As a class, we will work together to promote concept development in conjunction with voracious production of work. Students will start to develop their own visual language and explore their conceptual interests moving towards a larger, nuanced body of work.

Goals: To learn technical sculptural skills that allow you to confidently execute.   To thoroughly develop the basic stages of creating: ideate->sketch->test->construct->reflect. To synthesize craft and concept. To advance individual visual vernacular using sculptural methods and technique.

Content: The fundamental elements of sculpture, concepts of form and space, aesthetic theory, mold-making and casting, development of the individual aesthetic. Emphasis on skill building.
