SCLP 242 Sculpture - Modeling and Carving

3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Students explore the potential of form making through the processes of modeling and carving. Plaster, wax, clay, resins, wood, foam, and stone will be investigated and used in traditional and nontraditional ways. Students will trace the histories of these processes, learn how they are used in contemporary sculpture, and invent possible future applications. Perceptual modeling and the creation of abstract forms will reveal the communicative power of form and develop visual acuity. Students will learn the basics of mold making and bronze casting in this course. Conceptual thinking and creativity are developed through material studies, drawings, and learning to write about your work. Models and finished works will be created in the Digital Fabrication Studio. Visual analysis, problem solving, and critical thinking skills are developed through group critiques, seminars, and one-on-one meetings with faculty.

Requires completion of 30 credits.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
