Tough metal wires have lots of varieties! The course aims at cultivating participant’s understanding in the principles of three-dimensional artworks and developing the knowledge and skills needed in creating sculptures, such as form and structure, volume and scale, color and composition, etc. With focus on developing concepts and ideas, building up aesthetics and technical skills, the course will enable participants to create their own mini-sculptures in the future.
During the course, metal wire and ready-made objects in daily life will mainly be used as creative materials. Experiments and study on the shapes or patterns of 2-D and 3-D objects will be carried out to help participants to understand the basic principles of sculpture and how is it displayed in three-dimensional space. Various artists will also be mentioned for participants’ reference.
