This course allows eighth graders to explore the multiple dimensions of art. Students develop and construct environmental and object sculpture with attention to space and scale. The course addresses abstract and figurative composition and delves into the business side of art by learning about art production and sales as part of a 3D ring design project. Students design and craft rings, work within a budget, make schematics, study different types of materials, and create a ring on a 3D printer. Students photograph, present, and market their design to galleries, gaining practical knowledge as well as expanding on their creativity.
