Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Acquired knowledges: - The student will be able to recognize the sculptural quality of the refuired level - The student will be able to use gained knowledges to transmission of information from 2D to 3D implementation. Acquired skills: - The student will be able to apply concepts of basic principles of sculpture ; - The student will be able to realize spatial plastic task on the basal level .

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


- A student will be able to irealize basic spatial plastic geometric still life (architecture, such as geometric exercise) - The student will be able to shape , proportionally to navigate and then apply their skills in the implementation of tasks ( modeling skills, knowledge of basic principles of sculpture ); - B. student will be able to develop plastic embossed award (relief, plaques, medals ) . The exact processing.

Subject syllabus:

A. 1. Basic concepts and theories of sculptural works . 2. Way of working with plastic material , respect the principles of the modeling , variety types of work equipment.3. Storage of the model. 4. Principles of three-dimensional imaging. Compliance with the chronology of the workflow. 5. Proportions , statics , dynamics , rhythm, repetition , contrast, and other concepts that are related to the topic of geometric composition in plastic production. 6. Architecture . City walk - the study of the proportional spatial relationships. 7. Architecture as a geometric exercise. Ability own spatial implementation. The use of geometric objects. The concept of stylization . 8. The creation of the surface - surface as a reflection of the accuracy of workflow ( modeling skills , use of appropriate work equipment ) . 9. Modern architecture , the important realizations, relation to the creation of sculpture . 10. Mold making . Waste mold - suitable for rapid production of the original cast . B. 1 Relief in relation to historical periods . Comparison of illustrative reproductions.2. The concept of high and bas-relief . 3. The medal , plaque . 4. Workinf with fonts. Text on the surface . Choice of font type , location of the text, ability to work with font , etc. Exercise A. 1. Working with modeling clay - technology. Basic workflow - creation of a base for the subsequent implementation of the modeled object. 2. The modeling of the geometric model to compliance with the principles of correct workflow. 3. Modelling of a simple geometric still life acording to the real model . Working in 1:1 scale and due to workflow. 4. Implementation of the topic - small architectural composition. 5. Realization of sculpture. Design of spatial building on the architectural theme . The starting elements are the geometric objects , or a severely stylized objects forming the symbiotic interaction , harmonious whole. Required work with proportions , spaciousness and modeling skills . 6.Mold making . Production of waste mold. 7. A plaster cast . Casting plaster model to full / to hollow. 8. Finishing the cast . Exercise B. 1 The application of own drawing proposal - made by - three-dimensional model on the surfaceof the relief. 2. Determination of maximum heights and lowest parts and subsequently differentiation of other critical dimensions. 3. Focused modeling activity with a significant revision. 4. Clear refinement of the individual volumes. Precision work - choice of right work equipments. 5. Mold making . Making of a waste mold. 6. A plaster cast . Casting plaster model to full / to hollow - in the case of higher relief plates . 7. Finishing of the cast - wet and dry.
