This is an extensive study in form and structure to develop spatial understanding and the fundamentals of 3-dimensional design and construction. Students will explore the structural, compositional and conceptual implications of basic materials, such as wood, metal, plaster and found objects. Projects are designed as a means for investigating a variety of sculptural processes. Students will learn casting techniques, safe usage of power tools and welding equipment. In addition special emphasis will be placed on creativity, critical thinking and the ability to successfully articulate ideas visually.
Prerequisites: VISA 0100 or VISA 0110, or permission (under certain circumstances a student may petition for a waiver of this requirement upon submission of a portfolio).
