Course Description

In this course students initiate, plan and execute sculptures which are a vehicle for personal expression, to consolidate a folio of work and to apply knowledge of sculpture as a fine art discipline.

Students will consolidate technical skills, knowledge of contemporary and historical sculptural practise and their personal studio practice. Students will incorporate philosophical, cultural and conceptual influences into their sculptural practice 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.
