College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

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.
