ARTS 137 - Sculpture Projects

Intermediate course focused on contemporary issues of sculpture and objects in a spatial environment.

What and Where

Students will explore the social, cultural, and personal implications of using found and domestic objects in their work. We will discuss the multidimensional relationship between form and meaning when potentially disparate objects exist within a work. From bringing the world of objects into our work, we will then examine the possibilities of bringing our work out into the world. What are the contextual relationships when a work is placed in a dark alleyway, on the beach, in the woods, in an old basement, or on the ceiling? Does the environment in which the work exists merely inform it or does it become a part of the work itself?

The class will take a learning-by-doing approach, emphasizing process. Students will be taught basic techniques of fabrication and construction. In addition, we will look at examples of work, both historical and contemporary, to broaden our understanding of what sculpture is and what it can be.

Open to non-majors ARTS 136 highly recomended.

May be repeatable for credit.

Students will be charged a V & PA lab fee upon registering for this course.
