Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-324

Formerly listed as: ARAH-24


Douglas Culhane (Section 01)


In this course we will be exploring the role of scale in sculpture. Through a series of studio projects, in a variety of materials, we will create sculptures in a range of sizes to understand how scale affects the creation and perception of a work of three-dimensional art. Using wood, welded steel, clay, and plaster, we will examine forms including the miniature, the maquette, and the monument. Students will have opportunities for collaboration and installation and be encouraged to explore new territory while refining and developing their critical and technical skills. Contemporary critical approaches will be introduced through readings and visual presentations.

Requisite: ARHA 214 or consent of the instructor. Limited to 12 students. Spring semester. Visiting Lecturer Culhane.
