Sculpture Curriculum

Beginning Sculpture

By Arthur Williams

The Beginning Sculpture curriculum explores a diverse range of media in sculpture, including traditional sculpting methods and the latest tools and techniques. The Studio Experiences in each chapter are designed to go beyond basic skills and enhance student learning through individual and group explorations. Lessons throughout the book focus on creating basic forms to develop technical skills through either additive (such as molding) or subtractive (such as carving) means.
