Students will learn to translate lines into 3-D forms.
Students will learn to draw and sculpt "Cross contour lines"
Students will learn a variety of wire connection techniques.
Students will create forms out of wire.
Students will create texture and detail out of wire.
Students will learn about body proportions
Understanding Proportion Body proportions are the comparative measurements of the body parts in relation to each other. For instance, the ratio of the length of the arms to the height of an individual is a type of body proportion. These ratios provide an understanding of how body parts are structured relative to one another. In your sketchbook, you will draw the human body using the correct proportions. This will be used as a guide as you sculpt and as we draw/trace we discuss the key aspects of human anatomy.
Gesture and Movement Research the movement and gesture of the human body. You want your sculpture to express movement, gesture, expression or mood. Look the the following examples.
