3D Studio Art
Students explore how space, mass, balance, and form combine to create aesthetic forms or utilitarian products and structures. Media may include, but are not limited to, clay and/or plaster, with consideration
of the workability, durability, cost, and toxicity of the media used. Student artists consider the relationship of scale (i.e., hand-held,
human, monumental) through the use of positive and negative space or voids, volume, visual weight, and gravity to create low/high
relief or freestanding structures for personal intentions or public places. They explore sharp and diminishing detail, size, position,
overlapping, visual pattern, texture, implied line, space, and plasticity, reflecting craftsmanship and quality in the surface and structural
qualities of the completed art forms.Student artists use an art criticism process to evaluate, explain, and measure artistic growth in personal or
group works. This course incorporates hands-on activities and consumption of art materials.
