This course provides an ideal opportunity to explore the basic materials and methods of sculpture through hands-on studio work, lectures, and a museum visit. Become familiar with the works of noteworthy sculptors past and present, and get an overview of areas including the physics of sculpture, surface patinas and textures, and effective composition.


Students work in a variety of media (including paper, cardboard, oil clay, wire, and found objects) to create representational and abstract works using both additive and subtractive methods of sculpting.  

There is no prerequisite, but experience in drawing, design, woodworking or three-dimensional art is helpful.
