What is Sculpture?
 Definition: Sculpture is a three-dimensional artwork created by shaping or combining hard materials
            (such as marble, wood, glass, metal, etc.), clay, softer materials, and/or found objects.


 Types of Sculpture & Sculpture Techniques:

 Freestanding Sculpture: sculpture that is surrounded on all sides except by the base. Can be
                         viewed from all angles

 !                              Relief Sculpture: Sculpture that is built up from a base or back
 !
 !                              Carving: A process in which the artist subtracts or cuts away from a
                                !!       solid material to reach the desired form. (ex. wood, marble)
 !                              Modeling: A process of manipulating a soft material to create the form
                                !!         from shaping by the sculptorʼs hand. (ex. plaster, wax,
                                !!         !        paper-mache)

 Construction & Assemblage: A process of combining and joining
 !                            various materials to form a
 !                            three-dimensional object.
 !                              Example: Material Arrangements
   !                                         James Nizam
 Subtractive & Additive: A process of taking away (subtractive) or
 !                       adding (additive) to achieve the desired
                         form.
 Lamination: A process of construction by layering material together
             to form a new form.

                                                             !        !        !  !        (triangle,
                                                             square, etc.) is !!  !      !         planar
                                                             and has corners
 !                                                           Organic: Not Geometric. Has curves, found
                                                             !        in nature.

Types of Sculpture:

Statue – A representational sculpture depicting a specific person, event, animal, or object
Stacked Sculpture – a form of sculpture formed by assembling objects together by stacking
Environmental Sculpture – sculpture that creates or alters the environment for the viewer




 Adjective Sculpture Project
THE IDEA - Create a freestanding sculpture out of foam board, cardboard, paper or a material of
           choice (ask for approval for the different material) with different adhesive methods that
           expresses a specific adjective (adjectives are provided)

MATERIALS - foam board, cardboard, Bristol board, sculpting tools, hot glue, wood glue, x-acto
            knives, rulers

PROCESS – 1) Research
               Research at least (ONE) artist example of sculpture that interests you for this
                project.
               Make sketches/project ideas of at least (TWO) different adjectives.
          2) Building
               Consider what the adjective means; how would you represent it through forms
                 and shapes to express its meaning.
               Sculptures have to be at least 2 ft in one direction
               Remember the different techniques and types of sculpture we discussed!


RESULT – Completed sculptures will
         display these three
         qualities:

1) Your attention to craftsmanship
2) Meets size requirements
3) Your research and understanding of
    your adjective.
