Course Description:

 Sculpture involves the use of fundamental design principles and skills to construct 3 dimensional forms, sculpture(s).  Design problems are presented to the student enabling him/her to develop creative ideas into 3-D forms through the use of basic design concepts, skills, and techniques.  



Course/State Objectives and Descriptions:  

 This course is designed to provide a fundamental experience in sculpture design and provide an outlet for expression.  Knowledge of three-dimensional design is important in the making of sculptural forms because it allows us to intensify our powers of perception.  Sculpture provides the student with a chance to invent and express original ideas through a highly tactile medium.  Backed with historical to present day artists, the student is assured uniqueness by imposing his or her own order to the material.  Our principle target is creative, conceptual problem-solving, achieved through an awareness of design.  


 Craftsmanship, design quality, and sound construction, along with a familiarity of the tools and terminology is the central focus of the course.
