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 and present three-dimensional forms. Four projects will be assigned for the semester. Students will have access to the Art Department’s wood and metal facilities for fabrication of their projects. However, we will also work with non-traditional materials and techniques. Part of the course structure will include critiques in which students will be asked to discuss each other’s projects in conjunction with presenting their own work. We will discuss installation of sculptural objects and site -specific works. Documentation of all projects will be required and will be part of the grading structure of the class. We will discuss issues that surround contemporary sculpture, and how sculpture fits into to current cultural dialogues.

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.


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