Thinking in Three Dimensions

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Visual Literacy Skills: How to See

Thinking in Three Dimensions

Taught by Professor Carrie Patterson | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses

This lesson explores the principles of three-dimensionality in art. Begin with a study of low relief artworks, where forms stand out against a flat surface, and do a studio exercise creating low relief in clay. Continue with high relief technique in clay, learning to model the volume of a form. Finish with a look at fully three-dimensional art, and create a simple freestanding sculpture.
