Minimalist Sculpture

The students in Art II studied the Minimalist painting and sculpture movement that arose in the 1960s by creating a small-scale wood sculpture based on Minimalist principles. Students were given five random wood pieces, then had to create three sketches with each sketch demonstrating a different arrangement of the wood blocks. The students chose one of the three drawn sketches, then assembled and glued the wood blocks together for their final sculptural composition. Their sculptures were finished with lacquer, acrylic paint, latex paint, or a combination of the three. Below are several examples from this year’s 4th hour class.
