Synopsis

In the Sculpture 4A unit students become increasingly responsible for the delivery of their major study program, with emphasis placed on independent investigation, and the development of the creative and expressive potential inherent in students' work. This, combined with staff consultation, starts to determine students' focuses for future sculpture studio work. The emphasis shifts away from set projects towards self-motivated practice and research through which students articulate their conceptual and expressive strengths. Studio practice is still exploratory but with better grasp of theoretical issues relevant to students' practices.

Objectives

On successful completion of this unit, students should:

  1. have extended both their skills in art making and their vocabulary of materials and Sculpture studio processes;
  2. be able to select and develop a methodology for realizing a self-directed practice, and the commitment to rigorous work practice;
  3. have developed levels of experimentation and investigation within their work, moving towards a focus on specific themes and technologies;
  4. continue developing their own technical, iconographic and conceptual concerns, and have an understanding of the critical, conceptual and theoretical issues surrounding contemporary Sculpture;
  5. demonstrate a capability for managing a project from idea, to selection of appropriate materials and processes, to drawing up a time-line and to presentation of the finished work;
  6. have developed a capacity for self-appraisal of their own work, and provide constructive critique of the work of others, and be able to articulate this through oral presentations and written documentation;
  7. understand and practice the rules of occupational health and safety in force in the Sculpture studio, and be able to collaborate and co-operate safely and productively within the studio environment.
