Shaping Ideas
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: 3.0 credits of first-year studio and 1.0 credit of Liberal Studies (including the Writing course with a passing grade of 60%).
Within the context of sculpture and installation practices students will develop projects using the pliable mediums of clay, plaster and wax. Exploring the potentials of these three media beyond their historic links to traditional figuration, this course supports in-studio, practical research and production using case studies of a range of contemporary artists and art works. Students will be presented with a wide scope of strategies to connect ideas with material outcomes, while developing the studio skills to support the process.
Notes: Priority in registration is given to Sculpture/Installation Majors. Please take special note that this course has material fees associated with it.
