Intro to Sculp­ture focuses on trends in sculp­ture and art prac­tices from the end of WWII to the present. Stu­dents learn about form, con­text and con­cept, as well as his­to­ries and prac­tices rel­e­vant to con­tem­po­rary sculp­ture. They are trained in con­struc­tional method­olo­gies (basic mate­r­ial and tech­niques for mak­ing sculp­tural objects), and develop their own sculp­tural prac­tices through both directed and inde­pen­dent projects. They also encounter sculp­ture on cam­pus as well as dur­ing a field trip to Mei­jer Sculp­ture Gar­dens as an impor­tant part of the course­work. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in the fall term of every aca­d­e­mic year, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term circumstances.
