ARTS-257   Introduction to Sculpture

This class introduces the medium of sculpture through a variety of materials and techniques, building skill sets as well as developing problem solving and decision making. The sculpture process is concerned with form, space, presence, objecthood, the body, time and place. Students will learn to critically examine the medium of sculpture through discussions and critiques. We will discuss contemporary work and theory within the art historical context, and attempt to achieve a relevant definition of sculpture. Through theory, practice and discussion we will understand how to use and develop our gifts in order to glorify God and seek shalom. No prerequisite. Materials fee.
