Sculpture II | Guerin Catholic High School


Sculpture II
Grades 10-12
1 credit
Prerequisite: Sculpture I

Students taking Sculpture II engage in sequential learning experiences that encompass art history, art criticism, aesthetics, and art production that lead to the creation of high quality realistic and abstract works (some from life). The class is very student driven with students choosing what type of projects they would like to do and propose them to the teacher before production takes place. In addition to students experimenting a wide range of subtractive and additive processes (which include carving, modeling, construction, and assembling methods), they will reflect upon the outcomes of those experiences, explore historical connections, and find direct correlation to other disciplines. Students also use organizational principles and functions to solve specific visual problems and develop skills in applying media, techniques, and processes with sufficiency to communicate intended meaning.
