Fine Arts Exploration
This course explores the figure as a three-dimensional form. Students work directly from the model to gain knowledge of figure structure, gesture, scale, proportion, and composition, as well as to consider how the figure engages with space. A variety of sculpture processes are used to investigate the figure, including clay modeling, carving, mold making, and fabrication techniques. Contemporary ideas in figurative sculpture are explored through readings, lectures, and discussions.
