lesson 7: form
Our seventh assignment will be exploration of form, creating a unique miniature with modelling clay and mixed media sculptures.
Form may be created by the forming of two or more shapes or as three-dimensional shapes (cube, pyramid, sphere, cylinder, etc.). It may be enhanced by tone, texture and color. Form is considered three-dimensional showing height, width and depth. Examples of these are sculpture, theater play and figurines. Form is the external appearance of a clearly defined area. Form could refer to 4th dimensional figures such as in computer generated design.
Stretching into 3 dimensions requires a new perspective, and consideration for the compositions viewed form any side or direction.
