ART215 Three-Dimensional Design is a .50 credit course open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have had either Drawing or Design. Three-dimensional Design students investigate both the expressive nature of the sculptor and the logistical concerns of the engineer through the creation of 3-D objects. Students will develop an understanding of the relationship between space and object, while considering the role each plays in shaping the other. Students will create work in a variety of materials such as wood, paper and clay and will create both as individual artists and in collaborative projects.
CARDBOARD SCULPTURE/RE-PURPOSED MATERIALS
In this solo project, artists will create reproductions of household appliances using cardboard, printed cardboard, and magazine collage. No paint or drawing is allowed- all details, text, etc. must be created using collage materials. Students will develop understanding and skills in a variety of areas including: fabrication, use of cutting tools, glues and adhesives, cardboard joinery techniques, measurement, proportion and scale, re-scaling to fit size requirements, and more.
