Sculpture

SSA students frequently problem solve with materials in three-dimensions – whether they carve in stone, cast in concrete or plaster, weld metals, construct wooden forms, blow glass, or assemble found objects to create purely sculptural assemblages.

9401 | Introduction to Sculpture
This introductory sculpture course emphasizes contemporary and traditional three-dimensional processes, concepts and materials. Using a variety of materials, students will learn step-by-step methods to apply to their practice and ideas through design, and will have the opportunity to work through three projects: texture studies, structure studies, and material displacement. There will be an emphasis on innovative visual communication, conceptual clarity, problem solving and critical thinking both analytically and creatively. Presentations on artist works, as well as historical and three-dimensional visual vocabulary, will be given by the instructor. No class Nov 25.

9509 | All This Is Sculpture.2
A follow-up to All This Is Scuplture, students in this course will create 3-dimensional art using a variety of materials, both traditional and experimental. Principles of design will be applied as students work with the tools, materials, and skills required in creating sculptural forms starting with basic concept drawing and maquettes. Independent projects will be encouraged. Welding, metal fabrication, plasma cutting, and/or mold making and body casting techniques will be emphasized, but other materials such as clay, wire, found objects, and recycled materials will also be used. Topics will include interpretive analysis of form and content, traditional and modern methods for making sculpture, and interactive installation art. Class includes most materials; additional materials may be required for individual projects. No class Oct 8 & Nov 26.
