  1. Sculpture • Please take notes and make thumbnails in your sketchbook • You will need to reference this information later

  2. Olmec In 1862, while drilling for oil in the modern Mexican state of Tabasco, a startling discovery was made. Buried beneath the jungle floor was a Colossal Stone head! Exhibiting african features, the head fell into none of the artistic styles of the known civilizations of Mexico. This discovery shocked the world. There was evidence of an ancient civilization, one that pre-dated the mighty Mayan, Incan and Aztec civilizations! The Olmecs are now considered the "mother-culture" of Mexico.

  3. The colossal heads are commanding portraits of individual Olmec rulers, and the large symbol displayed on the 'helmet' of each colossal head appears to be an identification motif for that person. Colossal heads glorified the rulers while they were alive, and commemorated them as revered ancestors after their death

  27. Assignment: Using your gesture studies as a guide, create a small sculpture depicting the human figure in an expressionistic pose. Make a plan in your sketchbook – thumbnail of your idea along with a small explanation of what you will try to portray Things to think about: • realism or abstraction • use of texture • How can the work you just looked at become an inspiration?

  28. Sculpture Terms • Gesture Drawings • Form • Space (positive and negative) • Additive Process • Subtractive Process • Form vs. Function - or - Form follows Function • Wedge • Slip and Score • Feather the edges • Patina • Sgraffito • Greenware/ Bisque • Relief
