Improving 3D skills in Art & Design

Course description

 

This hands-on course has been devised for teachers who wish to expand their 3D skills and learn how sculptural work can be practically and achievably implemented within GCSE and A level Art and Design, and Fine Art courses across the syllabus providers.

 

In order to gain the highest results, your students need to be able to produce plans and finished pieces in a variety of media. The mixed-media responses commonly used in sculptural experimentation are perfect for this.  In this course you will look at proven techniques that improve achievement across the assessment objectives with deeper links to the development of ideas through contextual studies (A01), exploration and development of materials (A02), development through observations (A03) and potential sculptural responses in maquette form or as a final piece (A04).

 

In this practical course you will be led through processes that will enable you to gain confidence in teaching sculptural methods and design processes to your students.  Through sculptural drawings you will plan and make maquettes using a variety of materials easily found in any school.  You will then plan and produce small-scale armatures that can explore form and surface based upon observations and research.  You will also be shown many examples of sculptural possibilities that have been produced by students in secondary schools and also have the opportunity to discuss methods of construction to take back to your own students.
