Section Description

This class is an exploration of many issues of sculpture and sculptural thinking, in addition to the goal of investigating form and space. Students will use different materials and work on ways to create three-dimensional form. Four projects will be assigned for the semester. This class will be taught remotely. However, it is a very hands-on class. Students will be expected to make sculptures. Students will have access to the Art Department’s wood facilities for fabrication of their projects. However, this semester, all projects will also be able to be fabricated out of non-shop based materials for students who are working from home. Part of the course structure will include critiques in which students will be asked to discuss each other’s projects in conjunction with presenting the their own work.

Section Expectation

Students should be invested in approaching various ideas and methods that are inherent to creating three-dimensional works of art and investigations into sculptural concepts. The lab fee for the class covers most of the materials we will be using as well as shop fees for the use of the wood and welding facilities. We will be putting together kits for sculpture students so that everyone can have the means to fabricate projects for the class. Students who are working from home can request a kit be mailed to them in January. The lab fee covers the cost of the materials in the kit; there will be an additional charge to cover the cost of shipping any kits


Evaluation: Completion of assigned projects, involvement in hands on training and fabrication, participation in synchronous critiques and meetings.
