Course:  Sculpture and Material Exploration

Instructor: Jeanne Ferraro

Course Objectives and Description

In this class we will explore various materials used to create sculpture. As a student, you learn how to manipulate these materials and use sculpting tools safely. Together, we will analyze works of sculpture through reading, discussion and critique. Through an exploration of form, mass, gravity, surface, structure, and associative recognition in three-dimensional art, each student will create a variety of art works.  General concepts of sculpture from idea to form and from materials to methods will be explored. Each material has characteristics that lend itself to different artistic ideas and forms, in learning those characteristic's  the artist will choice the material that will enhance the object of art.

Each Project will be listed on the menu of Jeanne Ferraro's Teacher Page. For example: Sculpture-Small pewter sculpture in the menu with state the project we are working  on in the first full week of the term.
