    This course is open to students in 9th grade, who have an interest in learning a variety of three-dimensional building techniques. This course introduces students to three-dimensional art through the integration of concepts and skills associated with sculpture, crafts, and industrial design. Students will be exposed to a wide range of concepts, media, and techniques, as well as art history and current trends in three-dimensional design. Students will create a variety of projects using materials such as metal, clay, wax, and wood. Through individual attention, small-group instruction, lecture, and demonstration, students will develop creative ideas and refine artistic skills.
