ART291 :  Sculpture I

This course is an introduction to the sculpture studio. Sculptural processes including abstract and representational modeling, portraiture modeling, silicon rubber mold-making, metal casting, kiln-formed glass casting, glass fusing, glass slumping and 3D printing are taught alongside contemporary sculptural concepts of form and content. Using materials such as plaster, ceramics (clay), wax, silicon rubber, casting plastic, casting foam, casting glass, paper and wire, students learn how material and process interrelate to create form. Students are given an introduction to sculptural ideas and history with a view toward developing a personal form of expression. Studio work is supplemented with practical demonstrations, image lectures, field trips and critical discussions. Sequential.
Prerequisite: None, but ART117 is recommended.
Credit Hours: 4
