What is a Maquette?

Maquette is the term used for a scale model of a sculpture which is not finished yet. It serves as a rough draft so that the artist can test ideas about the sculpture without spending the effort and cost to make the full-size sculpture.

New Generation Sculpture

New Generation Sculpture was begun in the 1960s by a group of British artists. Their experiments with forms, materials and colors focused on sculpture which had no conventional bases. Their work used plastic sheeting, fiberglass, and other materials fastened together and brightly painted.

Ephemeral Art

Ephemeral art only occurs one time. It generally lasts for a very short period of time, and cannot be displayed as a work of art in a gallery or museum. Performances, happenings, sound sculptures, flyers and mass produced items have all been ephemeral art.

Drawing / Watercolor

Drawing and watercolor are two traditional art techniques which stand alone as media, but are often used in conjunction with each other. Drawing can create the basic outlines for watercolor painting. Drawing over dried watercolor or using watercolor pencils are combined media techniques.
