Advanced sculpture further develops skills in spatial relationships, utilizing different materials, and safe shop practices. The application of these ideas is emphasized through collaborative work, site-specific installations, the understanding of the language of sculpture and documentation of process.
A further exploration of three-dimensional form-making. Enables the student to develop artistic expression and a greater understanding of contemporary sculpture. Emphasis may include permanent/nonpermanent materials: clay, plaster, metal, wax, fabric, wood, stone, or found objects. Both additive and subtractive methods will be employed. The first two terms specifically address the technical aspects of the discipline and the development of a conceptual language. This provides the groundwork for third term independent projects.
