Course Description

In this course, students research and experiment with various techniques and media for the realisation of sculpture. It outlines the way sculptural work is produced through the use of experimentation and ongoing refinement.

This course is designed to extend and reinforce the relationship between ideas, source information and the manipulation of the materials in the production of sculpture. Students will be encouraged to extend their language, terminology and visual elements of sculpture and to understand adaptive properties and characteristics of materials.
