VISUAL ARTS – SCULPTURE
Sculpture can be defined as a three-dimensional artwork created by shaping or combining materials such as hard plastics, wood, cement and clay. The truth is that it does not differ that much from drawing, where an analytical knowledge of spatial aspects is gained through analysis on a two-dimensional level. The art of drawing therefore forms an important part of sculptural analysis. Learners are encouraged to draw and to sketch and to keep these works to use as inspiration and information for future sculptural work.
Grade 10: Learners are introduced to a variety of media. The course further focuses on acquiring the necessary technical skills and on exploring three-dimensional space.
Grade 11: Learners are expected to start integrating content and technique. The focus is on longer, more in-depth projects.
Grade 12: Learners are expected to display a personal interpretation of projects. Independent thinking is encouraged.
