Are you experimenting and looking for another art outlet? Have you considered sculpting?
Sculpture has been with us for as long as man has been in existence. Archeologists have located many wooden, clay, and stone objects used by early human inhabitants of earth. There are collections of both art and craft articles which were made by early man.
Sculpture is a form of art expressing itself into a three-dimensional object. The object may be molded, chipped or cut depending on the medium used. It is art because it is beautiful. It is a craft if it has a practical function. The object can be both an art and a craft when it is both beautiful and functional.
Many of us were exposed to the art and craft of sculpture when we molded clay and chipped wood during our early years of school attendance. We may have been given the opportunity of more advanced projects during high school years.
The years have passed, but this may be the time as an adult to consider taking classes or teaching your self to create these two or three-dimensional art pieces.
The mediums of choice will include sand, clay, wood, sawdust, plastics, plaster of Paris, paper, paper Mache, wood, metal, snow, and ice. The sculptures may be constructed with human hands or using various types of tools.
It is recommended that you start with small projects. This is a less costly way to experiment with different mediums until making a final choice.
