How do we make it? How do we talk about it? And what does it mean? How do we make objects in space? Is gravity our friend or foe? This course invites students to investigate the fundamental principles of sculpture while encouraging exploration of classical and contemporary approaches. Sessions are intensive explorations into a variety of techniques and materials including plaster, wood, cardboard, styrofoam, and metal. There will be a strong emphasis on drawing and how drawing plays a key role in the making of sculpture. Regular slide presentations compliment individual group critiques.
