Sculptural Forms

Sculptural Forms will explore visual and physical concepts and processes such as form, volume, plane, line, space, texture, surface, etc. Students will gain experience with a diverse selection of sculptural processes including addition (construction or fabrication), subtraction (carving), manipulation (modeling) and substitution (casting). Students will also be exposed to innovative methods such as working with found objects, kinetics, installation and 4D applications.  Contemporary and traditional issues related to sculpture will be explored through assigned readings, personal research, class discussion, critiques and individual projects. Students will be required to work proficiently in their sourcebooks and develop their ideas through course-related research.
