COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1. Employ technical skills and aesthetics in visual analysis of figurative, non-figurative, and
mixed-media sculpture.2. Use a variety of tools and materials to create large and complex sculptures, forms, and/or structures.
3. Evaluate artistic content and meaning in the work through critique.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Analyze the relationship between forms, surface, materials, proportion, and scale to appreciate complex and large sculptures.
2. Demonstrate advanced construction methods of figurative, non-figurative, and mixed-media sculpture.
3. Expand a working vocabulary of sculptural terms to make aesthetic and technical judgments of one's own work and the work of others.
4. Define narrative and emotive content in the creation of sculptural works.
5. Demonstrate creative processes and decision-making skills with both disciplined work habits and risk-taking experimentation.
6. Demonstrate visual perception skills to analyze forms, materials and methods through participation in class critiques.
7. Examine examples of historical and contemporary sculptures to arrive at aesthetic and technical judgments.
8. Define health and safety issues that arise from the use of materials and equipment to maintain a sculpture studio.
