Sculpture 123D

Today we will be experiementing with the concept of 3 deminsions using the ipads.  123 Sculpt is an app that replicates building with clay.  To start we will define these three terms: sculpture, subtractive, & additive.
Then we will experiement and familiarize our selves with the app.  The end goal will be to create a 3-d monster bust.

¥Sculpture is three-dimensional artwork created by shaping or combining hard materials, typically stone such as marble, metal, glass, or wood, or plastic materials such as clay, textiles, polymers and softer metals. The term has been extended to works including sound, text and light.
¥There are 2 types of scultprue:
      Subtractive process
      Additive process
¥Subtractive sculpture is the oldest form of sculpture and involves removing material, as in wood carving or stone sculpture, to create a finished work. Subtractive sculpture is by far the most technically difficult and due to the nature of the medium is the most restrictive in expression
¥Additive sculpture describes all other forms of sculpture and the process most commonly used today.  Simply put, additive sculpture is the process of creating sculpture by adding material to create the work. 

Here is our first demo...
