Sculptural installations provide an opportunity to immerse a viewer in an art experience. In this class, students will be led through the process of developing their own ideas for a sculptural installation using scale model building techniques. A brief introduction to the history of installation and examples of contemporary artists using the medium will also be explored. This is a great class for students interested in pushing their work to a larger scale.
