This is a studio course emphasizing experimentation of form and space in three dimensions. The elements and principles of design will be stressed in all projects. Projects will focus on creating sculptures using different types of materials such as: clay, wire, paper mache, plaster and recyclables. We will discuss well-known artists with each project. Sketches will be required in preparation for projects. Students will learn to complete projects that start with an initial idea, complete mockups and final assembly. We will also complete the process of ceramics from forming clay to firing and glazing. Students will be required to research and deliver a presentation on an artist of their choice, approved by teacher.
