ARST 133 - Introduction to Sculpture: In/With/About Wood

FC ARHU
4 credits
An introduction to the materials, methods, and concepts of wood sculpture. Students will explore wood on a technical level, and the historical, social, environmental, and economic values associated with this material. Students will develop woodworking skills, while combining traditional craft with digital techniques to produce contemporary art. Students will engage with wood as an artisanal practice (weaving, inlay, carving), as a material for mobile artworks (woodworking, joinery, and model-making), and for semi-permanent large-scale construction (framing, carpentry techniques). Students will become familiar with technical drawings and 3D machines including hand tools, stationary power tools and saws, and sanding/finishing products and techniques. Field trips required.
