Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
VART5163 - Sculpture Major Study Level 1/ VART5161 - Sculpture Minor Study Level 1
In this course students initiate, plan and execute sculptures which are a vehicle for personal expression, to consolidate a folio of work. Students apply knowledge of sculpture as a fine art discipline to participate in the planning and organisation of an exhibition of works outside the studio environment
In this course students will consolidate technical skills, knowledge of contemporary and historical sculptural practice and their personal studio practice. Students will incorporate philosophical, cultural and conceptual influences into their sculptural practise and apply and extend their knowledge of materials and processes thus developing and consolidating their personal visual language. Students will work increasingly more independently and develop a professional and independently motivated and disciplined approach to art practice.
