This course is a continuation of basic three-dimensional design concepts, as introduced in ART 111. These concepts are strengthened and reinforced in ART 112 through further development of technical and design issues as they apply to working sculpturally. ART 112 emphasizes two aspects of working sculpturally not covered in ART 111: content and mass. The incorporation of the element of content, both conceptual and perceptual, stresses the importance of message and meaning in art. Students will confront traditional methods of sculpting mass, including both the additive and subtractive processes of modeling and carving. Projects are designed to encourage development of a personal artistic aesthetic.
Additional course fee: $135.
