DG58ART | Clay Day Part 1 | Sculpture

Hi Artists! Today we will begin exploring the world of sculpture. Sculpture Definition - the action or art of making statues by carving or chiseling (as in wood or stone), by modeling (as in clay), or by casting (as in melted metal). Three-Dimensional (3-D) Form - A 3D shape can be defined as a solid figure or an object or shape that has three dimensions – length, width and height. Unlike two-dimensional shapes, which are flat, three-dimensional shapes have thickness or depth. Depending on what type of clay you have right now, you may need to adapt and modify the steps that I go over in the video. For instance, I use Sculpey clay which requires an oven and the help of an adult, of course. If you are using air dry clay, it is not necessary to bake your clay in an oven because it is just that - AIR DRY clay. So, in that situation, you just need to wait and have patience for when your clay hardens. Typically with air dry clay, you would need to wait until overnight for the best results. All this being said, enjoy the video. 1. Watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMXfZXWyLRQ&t=23s 2. Take out your clay and other clay tools you have available and start FORMING your sculpture. Be creative! Let your imagination run wild! 3. Post a picture of your work here on Seesaw. Have fun and MAY THE ARTS BE WITH YOU! Mr. Belonio
