- Project Description:
Create a triptych with these requirements:
Sculpture Students: one part will be a found object, one part will be made entirely of wood, one part will be made of metal.
A triptych is a work of art that has three separate pieces that are visually and/or thematically related, but which do not physically touch.
Below is a list of possible project themes that you can use in developing your ideas.
- Metaphors and symbols
- Memory and/or dream
- Systems and rules
- Science and technology
- Narrative and sequence
- Change and motion
- Time (linear and non-linear)
- Learning Objectives:
- To explore special issues of working in large scale (time, cost, connotation, etc).
- To develop an understanding of how meaning in art is generated through the relationships among the artist, the art, and the viewer;
- To learn to link varied materials together through the connotation of the objects;
- To cultivate the ability to explore, research, and develop personal ideas and themes;
- To develop a system of sketching and drawing methods that will allow you to investigate, conceptualize and bring ideas through to a finished project;
- To use drawings and maquettes to develop ideas and forms;
- To learn to choose appropriate fabrication techniques to realize ideas;
- To develop an understanding of the principles and elements of design and begin to apply them effectively in your own work;
- To develop a vocabulary of the principles and elements of design and the ability to use it in discussing and writing about art.
- Project Terminology: Triptych, Found objects, Made objects
- Required Materials & Supplies: Steel is available for Sculpture; everything else must be supplied by you.
- List of Artists: Bring in examples of diptychs or triptychs on tuesday to share with class.
