Form & Space
Focus is on three-dimensional design. We often think of art and design in terms of two-dimensional skills — drawing and picture-making. But the “real” world is three-dimensional — nature, buildings, our bodies, even space itself. Knowing how the complex 3-D visual experience works is vital in all aspects of visual art and/or design. Focusing on the unique problem of invention in form, the Form & Space curriculum teaches the process of imagining, planning, constructing, and visually resolving students’ three-dimensional inventions.
Throughout the year, activity progresses from the simple to the complex, from the directed to the self-directed. Designing and constructing three-dimensional form is a challenging and gratifying process. By the end of the year, students handle materials, use tools, think in-the-round, and solve 3-D problems of both a visual and constructional nature.
