Minimalist Sculpture

The students in Art II studied the Minimalist painting and sculpture movement that arose in the mid-20th century by creating a small-scale wood sculpture based on Minimalist principles. Students had to choose random pre-cut pieces of wood, then assembled and glued the wood blocks together for their final sculptural composition. Their sculptures were then finished with lacquer, acrylic paint, tempera paint, latex paint, or a combination of media. Below are several examples from this year’s 1st hour class.
