Modeling the subject in which students are engaged in creating sculptural charakteru.Předmětem study the formation of plastic with a focus on independent work and ability to execute on the given topic, which enables understanding of sculpture and orientation requirements in the field. An integral part of the course is a general knowledge of sculptural realization.

Subject syllabus:

Lecture 1st Basic concepts and theories of sculptural works 2nd How to work with plastic materials, respect the principles of modeling, different types of job aids. For chovávání model. 4th Principles of three-dimensional imaging. Compliance with the chronology of the workflow. 5th Proportions, statics, dynamics, rhythm, repetition, contrast and other concepts, which weighs on the geometric compositions in plastic production. 6th Architecture. Architectural Illustration visit GVUO exposure. 7th Architecture as a geometric exercise. The ability of the spatial realization. The use of geometric objects. The concept of stylization. 8th Surface. Modeling - surface as a reflection of the accuracy of the work process (modeling skills, use of appropriate job aids) 9.Moderní architecture, an important implementation, the link with the creation of sculpture (also examples from the Renaissance period). 10th Formation. Blank form - suitable for rapid production of the original cast Exercise 1st Working with modeling clay. Basic workflow-production wafer for the subsequent implementation of the modeled object. 2nd Modeling geometric model according to the principles for proper work procedures. 3rd Modeling a simple geometric still life by the model. Working on a 1:1 scale and related workflow. 4th Modýlek. Implementation Bozzetti on (small architecture). 5th Implementation of the topic. Space creation following the architectural theme. The starting element is the geometric objects or well-styled buildings forming the interaction between the symbiotic, harmonious whole. Required to work with proportions, spatiality and modeling skills. 6th Formation. Production of plaster molds blind. 7th Plaster cast. Pouring plaster model in full, the production of stone fragments. 8th Retouching the cast.
