Art Skills and Techniques:

TRANSFORM 2DIMENSIONAL SHAPES
  INTO 3 DIMENSION MASS
 

A
form may be 2 dimensional or 3 dimensional.
 

A 2 dimensional form is easy to recognize because it is unshaded and looks flat in appearance.
This flat shape can be any color or tone.
The shape itself appears as a silhouette when seen against another color...
for example, black against white.

Very simple flat shapes that you invent can be transformed into stunning 3d masses.
This is done by the addition of lines to represent surface edges and then shading.

Sculpture

is made by artists who have a special fondness for the appearance of 3 dimensional mass.

Sculptors like the way surfaces change and run into other surfaces.
They like the way light reflects from the surfaces
Illumination produces the effect of light and shadow in scupture.


The following are some examples of shapes
which have been translated into 3d MASSES
.
