SCLP 242 Intro to Sculpture-Modeling & Carving Concepts

College of Art, Media & Design School of Art

3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Students will explore the potential of form making through processes of modeling and carving. Materials such as plaster, wax, clay, resins, wood, foam and stone will be investigated and used in traditional and nontraditional ways. Perceptual modeling, object making and the creation of abstract works will reveal the communicative power of form and develop visual acuity. Students will learn the histories of these processes and discover how they are applied to contemporary sculpture practice and invent possible future applications. Visual analysis, problem solving and critical thinking skills are developed through group critiques, seminars and one on one meetings with faculty.
