ART 163

3-D Design

Studio, 3 Credit Hours

This course is an introduction to three-dimensional design concepts, materials, tools, and processes. The assigned projects will explore line, plane, volume, surface, and spatial organization in three-dimensional works. Forces, such as gravity, that affect balance, gesture, and weight will be investigated. In addition to the formal concerns of 3-D design, consideration of the social, cultural, and aesthetic contexts of work will be explored. The use of terms and language commonly used to describe three-dimensional works of art will be introduced and used to discuss and evaluate work.
