Subject Title
Traditional Illustrative Media III

Subject Description
This subject introduces students to the language of Texture and Form, and its importance to the artist as it pertains to sculpture. It will include an initiation to the fundamentals of the various media used, wire framing and the process of building up the form. Students will explore these issues through studies in life, natural phenomena and dynamics as well as understanding the basic forms which comprise the more complex forms. The Studio will emphasize this through the application and exploration of a selected range of media, such as Sculpy, Plastic Card, Rigid foam, wood and found objects to represent required forms, and tools for sculpting as well as the solvents and emulsifiers to aid in the subtler qualities in sculpture.
