ART 3510 - Intermediate 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 advanced 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 elements of sculpture and technical processes as required by individual projects.
