NYU Steinhardt

Topics in Sculpture: The Figure

  • Course Number: ART-GE 2231
  • Hours: 60
  • Units: 3
  • Description: The figure is analyzed as sculptural expression - how it is conceived & developed, as well as its relation to history & contemporary thought. Using a model, students explore individual perceptions & classical principals of proportion, volume, structure and anatomy by creating a portrait bust, a seated figure, & a standing figure. The tactile nature of clay will facilitate eye/hand skills, & opportunities to explore carving, firing, & coloring the surface. The sculptural experience will be enhanced by class critiques, gallery & museum excursions.
