FASC 363 - Medallic Sculpture

1.5 credits
The Medallic Arts have a long history beginning with monetary coins in the ancient world, developing through Renaissance medals into a vital and international art form that now includes small free-standing sculpture. The link between all of these is not only size, but the need for the work to have a specific communicative function, while at the same time exploring the contemporary sculptural issues. This is a studio course with a lecture component to give the student a history of the discipline. Projects are designed to challenge the student conceptually and to introduce forms and techniques such as bas relief, carving, mold making casting and fabricating, all on a small scale. There will be annual opportunities to exhibit the finished sculpture internationally.
