ADN 492: Special Topics in Design – Sculpting

Instructor: Klára Horáčková
Credits: 3
GEP: Elective

Course Description

The Sculpting course is designed to help students develop creative practices, artistic knowledge, critical thinking and problem-solving skills in a variety of materials. An emphasis will be on visual communication and creative production in two and three-dimensional media, covering the main sculpting techniques and principles, proceeding from the basics to more complex tasks.

This class is recommended to College of Design students. Students coming from other colleges will be asked to submit a portfolio of their past work.

Previous experience in the field of art and design is required, this class may be too difficult and demanding for students with a limited skill set.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the semester, students should be capable of developing their own projects from initial ideas and drawings to realization in the material. They should be able to implement their vision independently and with confidence, using all the techniques and principles this course will cover. Students are expected to take notes about their projects and processes, as well as a sketchbook of ideas. Finalized works will be exhibited at the end of the semester within the NC State Prague Center.
