Three Dimensional Design (Art III)

The elements of art and principles of design are reinforced throughout the year through students exploring and engaging with a variety of three-dimensional projects continuing to work toward mastery on an individual basis. Various new three-dimensional techniques are introduced. Various artists and time periods continue to be explored in connection with projects. There is an emphasis on understanding art as a reflection of society and a form of communication. Students develop critical thinking skills in planning the design and creation of their three dimensional artworks.

Students will:

  • Understand, describe, and critique complex three-dimensional artworks.
  • Understand and express mood.
  • Create sculpture using a subtractive and/or additive technique. Subtractive refers to carving taking away material to create a form. Additive refers to building up or adding material to create a form.
  • Understand the different three-dimensional techniques using clay, wood, paper, and soldering.
  • Demonstrate appropriate and safe use of art materials and techniques.
  • Apply knowledge of three-point perspective related to three dimensional work including identifying eye level, vanishing points, converging lines, receding surfaces, height, width, and depth.
  • Identify and create works with simulated and real textures.
