How can we define the art of sculpture?
How can we build a sculpture without materials?
The students used to bring tools and materials to make sculpture, but during this lesson they had no material, just Minecraft, which raised several questions about how to use Minecraft with an artistic touch.
The students will work in pairs on a flat platform and start building virtual sculptures.
During the lesson have the students work in pairs, pairs discuss with each other the shape of the sculpture they will build. Start the construction. Encourage them not to be afraid to go wrong because they can repair their work easily, Take advantage of this margin of freedom to create without constraint.
Construction in a virtual space with cubes.
The students will build three-dimensional works, such as contemporary buildings and sculptures.
The use of repetition in construction, but working on a diversity of size, colour and direction
Create formal relationships between the elements of colour and repetition sculpture.
Create spaces in the works,
Address the problem of fullness and emptiness.
Use of technology in the field of fine art and renewal of tools and techniques used
Learn more about virtual reality and the opportunities it offers to the learner during construction, including the opportunity to fix construction errors.
This learning scenario will show students that we can built the sculptures virtually.
