AOP A-1 Plaster Studies :: Fall 2011

The AOP A-1 curriculum includes casting implied space out of plaster.

Students go through several steps in order to define volume with the use of explicit and implicit boundaries. They start their investigation in drawing form and sketch models in order to then obtain a mold for their plaster pour. Finally they get to an extensive, exciting day of plaster pouring, where they see their spatial studies taking a new form, going from a powdery consistency to a liquid one and then to a solid one.

All of this happens at either a fast or slow speed depending on the nature of the material. An important learning goal of the day is collaboration; A-1 students help each other to obtain successful final volumes!
