Sculpture: Introduction to Materials (SCLP100-36)

This course is an introduction to working with three-dimensional space using a range of simple materials such as wire, cardboard, paper, fabric, wood and found objects. Emphasis is on understanding the physical possibilities and limitations of each material while putting together a dynamically designed and conceptually cohesive structure. Projects will encourage students to discover their own individual approach to assignments while expanding their notions of materiality, space and form. Students are required to keep an on-going ‘idea book’ to use as a source to develop their projects. Required Textbook: Causey, Andrew, Sculpture Since 1945, Oxford History of Art (1998). It is highly recommended that students purchase or order textbook well in advance of the first day of class to allow for delivery time.

Sculpture: Ideas and Process (SCLP200-36)

This studio-based course investigates contemporary concerns involved in making sculpture. The course emphasizes the development of meaning in sculpture and involves a more intensive exploration of techniques and materials. Importance is placed on relating sculpture to particular ideas such as the object and material as source of meaning as well as themes such as the body, architecture, memory and cultural diversity. Students are also taught the importance of concepts such as scale, space, accumulation, placement and presentation of finished work. Prerequisite: Sculpture: Introduction to Materials or sculpture experience. Required Textbook: Collins, Judith, Sculpture Today, Phaidon (2014). It is highly recommended that students purchase or order textbook well in advance of the first day of class to allow for delivery time.

The Image in Sculpture and Installation (SCLP213-36)

This multi-disciplinary course explores the use of the image in sculpture and installation practices. Our increased exposure to images informs a renewed interest in our physical and material world. Much contemporary art addresses this duality of the virtual (images) and the actual (materials) by cross-pollinating image based forms such as photography, video, collage, drawing, and painting with the three-dimensional capacities of sculptural and installation centered approaches. This course introduces students to these types of art practices through slide and video lectures, which will support a series of creative projects. Students will be encouraged to begin by drawing upon their existing skills, interests and preferred material approaches, then expanding them into new conceptual and aesthetic territory to address the themes of the course. One-on-one feedback and guided discussion with peers will support creative development.
