CESC 180: Intro. to Metal Sculpture

This hands-on course explores the fundamental concepts, materials, processes and techniques of contemporary metal sculpture. After you evaluate and refine these concepts and technology, you will use them effectively to create a modestly-sized metal sculpture. Topics include techniques for material cutting, shaping and joining, general shop and equipment safety, work flow and material characteristics. Hand tools, stationary equipment and MIG/oxyacetylene welding are also examined. Note: All consumables (gasses, welding/brazing rod, and fabrication materials) will be supplied for in-class assignments. All projects must be vetted and approved by the instructor. Attending the course's first session is mandatory due to necessary studio safety orientation.


Prior art-making experience is required, experience in three-dimensional art is recommended.
