|dc.description.abstract||The principle objective of this study is to find out whether the enhancement of sculpture content, could be achieved through practical study and use of colour and it's effects.
In order to achieve the above, the researcher produced both two and three dimensional sculptural forms on which colour was applied, which some art pieces were left un coloured as control pieces for the purpose of comparison.
A quantitative method of research with a self administered questionnaire with closed ended questions has been used in this project to collect and analyse the data. A Total of 80 respondents participated in the study and their opinions about the use of colour in sculpture has been recorded.
The results obtained from the research project, suprisingly indicate that the lay people tend to appreciated colour application in sculpture than the professionally trained artists. Undergraduate art students also prefer the use of colour in sculpture than the professionally trained artists. But by looking at the research in its full totality, the general public whether artsits or not agree that if colours are applied in sculpture, do enhance the scuptural content in terms of emotional associations, message conveyance and contrast.||en_US
