3-D Foundations - Basic Sculpture

Course Number: ARST 10601

MATERIALS FEE. The fundamentals of three-dimensional design consist of the strategies and tools an artist or designer uses to generate ideas for and execution of form in space. Through research, conceptualization and production students discover the power of making sculptural objects- how they function or change function, how they make a viewer move through and engage a space, how they transform ordinary objects into the extraordinary, and transform perception and environment. Students will create projects using a variety of traditional and contemporary sculptural mediums, techniques, and tools and be exposed to industrial applications and visual vocabularies. 3D Foundations is for students entering the art and design program to provide the foundation of personal creative practices for visual communication, conceptualization, process and technique that will continue to evolve and refine in upper level studio and design courses.
