Sculpture is the branch of the visual arts that operates in three dimensions. Sculptural processes originally used carving (removal of material) and modelling (addition of material) in clay, stone, metal, ceramics, wood and other media. Contemporary sculpture, however, uses a wide variety of materials that may be worked by removal, assembled by welding or modelling, moulded, or cast. The revival of classical models in the Renaissance produced famous sculptures such as Michelangelo's David; modernist sculpture, however, has moved away from traditional processes and the emphasis on the depiction of the human body.
If you want to bring out your inner Michelangelo, sculpting is a great hobby. There are many materials you can use for sculpting, but the most common and easiest to learn is clay. Feel intimidated by visions of Greek and Roman sculpture with all that intricately carved, pale white marble? Did you know that, based on pigmentary evidence, many of them were originally painted in a full range of gaudy colours!
