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.

Art Intervention

Art Intervention is art which is intended to interact with an existing situation, structure, artwork, audience, or institution. Interventions became popular in the 1960s, as artists sought to effect change in political and social contexts. Artist-in-residence programs were inspired by this art movement.

Painting

Painting is the process of applying media to a surface, using a tool such as a brush. The term refers to both the action and the resulting object. Artists use many tools to paint, such as brushes, airbrushes, palette knives, sponges or fingers and hands.

Found Object

Found object is the term used for a man-made or natural object, or object fragment which an artist either finds or buys, keeping it for inspiration or as a work of art. The artist may also modify it, or use it for collage or assemblage.
