  • Overview

    This intermediate course introduces students to traditional sculptural materials (such as clay) as well as more innovative/modern and contemporary materials. Students will work with form and space. Part of the course will be given to modelling the figure in clay; students will learn how to project sculpture by drawing and then creating clay maquettes (small models in clay). On-site visits to Roman venues with exhibitions of sculpture may be included. 3 credits, 4 hours.
