  • Summer 2 2016
  • Aug 08 to Aug 12
  • Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM
UArts

An introduction to the methods and techniques of modeling, making a mold, casting, and finishing the final piece. Learn to prepare an armature, set up the clay, scale the sculpture and complete the process of modeling in water-based clay. The ability to structure a modeled form and to comprehend how to represent compound volumes are addressed through direct observation. Approaches presented can be applied in any art classrooms and include how to lead the process of three-dimensional creation to students. The unique techniques of using silicone as a precise mold-making material are enhanced by discussions and demonstrations of alternative methods.

3-D Projects for the Classroom: Collage + Assemblage - a Universal Framework
ED 6342 01

  • Summer 2 2016
  • Aug 08 to Aug 12
  • Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM
UArts

Children and young adults has grown up in a media-drenched environment, full of appropriation. It is second nature to young people to create and curate personal collections of these images. Collage and assemblage as an art practice seeks to recontextualize that collective imagery to be presented in thoughtful and communicative ways. In this course, educators will learn to create collages and assemblages that communicate a focused message. We will explore the ways in which collage and assemblage has been used across cultures and by various artists. We will discuss the environmental and socioeconomic benefits to the art form, using recycled, salvaged, and personal imagery and artifacts to create works of art. Educators will come away with a deep appreciation for meaning in everyday objects and materials for artistic expression.
