Pay a visit to this examination of sculpture in the realm of fine arts. As you enter the lobby, you have an array of choices to make to help you learn more about sculpture. Perhaps the best place to begin is with the one-minute movie that gives a brief look of sculpture throughout history. After that the Sculpture Studio is the place to go find out about three ways of producing sculptures: carving, casting, and modeling. The interactive lets you manipulate the tools needed for each type of sculpture. Short videos introduce several sculptors as they talk about how they create. Be sure to try your hand at being an art critic and find out even more information.
