ART 235 - Sculpture I: Basic Sculpture with a Dose of Hot Metal

We begin with an exploration of the nature of vision, creating life-size clay portrait heads of a partner. We move on to the exploration of the tools and processes available in the sculpture studio, including woodworking tools for both carving and fabrication. Sculpture I introduces students to case metal work in our foundry, where we will learn a lost wax ceramic shell casting system. The range of form which can be explored is infinite and starts with a wax form which is eventually replaced with 2100-degree bronze. Like my other course offerings, Sculpture I will include off-site projects that includes a class trip to my farm/studio in Western Wisconsin. $150 materials fee charged.

  Prerequisite(s): ART 130 is recommended Every semester. (4 Credits)
