Classroom resources and inspiration!
The History of Sculpture
Dale Chihuly Prezi
Amazing Soap Carvings!
History and Pictures of Egyptian Mummy Masks
In Sculpture, we will be exploring many different types of 3-dimensional art. We will learn about form, embossing, engraving, relief sculpture, carving, additive sculpture, and many other types of sculpture. We will use many different types of media to create art, including paper, soap, foil, metal, plaster, cardboard, etc. By the end of the course, you should also be able to actively participate in a classroom critique, being able to effectively give and take constructive criticism.
Late work will only be accepted up to one day after it is due. Work turned in the day after it is due will receive a 20 percent deduction. Work will NOT be accepted two or more days late! If you are absent, it is YOUR responsibility to get and make up any missing work!
