Tools and Materials Journal Assignment

This journal assignment should demonstrate your ability to:
· Consider the visual results of particular choices of tools, materials, or processes.
· Ask questions about art making.

Write about the following items in your journal:

  1. Most traditional sculptures in Europe and the United States after the Middle Ages are not painted. How different would the Southwest Pieta look if it were all one color?
  2. The final sculpture is painted fiberglass. It was made with molds formed over a plasticine (oil-based modeling clay) form. What are the visual results on the surface of the sculpture that shows the tools and materials used to make the sculpture?
  3. What are the advantages or disadvantages of making more than one cast of a sculpture?
  4. What questions would you like to ask Luis Jiménez about the making of the Southwest Pieta?
