ART 2513 - 3-D Design

3 Credits
This is a foundational course in three-dimensional design. This course is intended to give students a fundamental basis for applying the Elements of Art and Principles of Design within three-dimensional art making. The emphasis will be on three-dimensional construction as an introduction to sculpture.  The course materials will encourage the design student to creatively combine personal narrative with a successful solution of each 3-D project assignment.  Emphasis will be placed on vocabulary and design concepts evaluated through tests, techniques, active participation in class critiques, discussions, and class work sessions.  Students will be assigned five projects and will have three weeks to complete each construction.  On each assignment due date, there will be a class critique in which students will discuss their decisions and their processes.

Prerequisite: ART 1103 Design I  

Course Level Objectives
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Identify 3D elements and principles such as Form, Volume, Mass, Texture, High and Low Relief, In the Round, Line, Shape, Color, and Space (GEO 2, 3)
2. Create a Relief Sculpture by layering materials such as foam core or wood (GEO 2, 3)
3. Create a Sculpture in the Round using wire to show movement through line (GEO 2, 3)
4. Construct a 3D work that repurposes objects to create a personal narrative (GEO 2, 3)
5. Construct a kinetic or mobile 3D work that exhibits balanced weight (GEO 2, 3)
6. Create a 3D work that uses both actual and implied texture (GEO 2, 3)
7. Discuss his/her work and the work of others using correct art terminology and a professional demeanor (GEO 1, 2, 3, 4)
