CSM Foundation Fine Art Sculpture Project No.1
OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE from CSM FOUNDATION DIPLOMA IN ART AND DESIGN. For information about the course please see here.
This resource contains materials that CSM Fine Art Lecturers will use for teaching a Fine Art Sculpture project called 'Process Process Process'. It will be taught to Foundation students during Part 1 of the 2013-14 course, when they are introduced to various aspects of Fine Art practice.
PPP is a week-long project suitable for students who may not have had any previous experience or knowledge of contemporary sculpture. It is practical and studio-based, with a lecture and seminar activities to provide contextual and critical background. Students are asked to research, reflect and evaluate in additional to their studio work – please see http://www.arts.ac.uk/cetl/visual-directions/ for information. As students are in the first weeks of Foundation, this project is designed to be completed by students who do not yet have access to workshop equipment.
The Lesson Plans include details of learning outcomes for the students based on specific activities. These can be sampled individually, transferable depending on time and resources. For example, in other Sculpture projects we have run at CSM, the 'Joining' workshop on Day 2 has been used as a skills-based lesson more generally, not just within this project.
