ARTS 276 Spring 2013 Sculpture: Metal and Plaster Plus

This course is an introduction to the media and processes of sculpture. The focus will be on developing technical and analytical skills as they relate to the interplay of form, content, and materials of sculpture. A variety of materials will be explored; however, the emphasis will be on techniques and processes associated with metal and plaster and how they relate to sculpture. Metal techniques will include gas welding, arc welding, and MIG welding. Plaster processes will include modeling and casting. This course is based on a series of sculpture projects which will investigate both the formal and the conceptual aspects involved in creating personal statements in a visual format. A substantial amount of time outside class is necessary to complete these projects.
