Course Description:
 This course is designed for highly motivated students with proven abilities in sculpture and deep interest in exploring form and space. Instruction includes three dimensional techniques in additive and subtractive construction using clay, wood, fiber, found objects, metal, plastic, and wax. Students are expected to research sculpture styles and periods while building their own capacity to understand the implications of three-dimensional art on individuals and in societies around the world. Students develop, refine, and create a series of sculptures based on their own existing works of art. They also write an artistís statement to accompany the works in this series. Individually, students analyze and select their own artistic work for presentation. Collaboratively, they curate an exhibit based on a theme.
