Sculpture Elective Advanced (MSTD8161)


The Advanced Elective unit in Sculpture provides a studio-based approach to the production of creative work. At the beginning of the semester each student develops an individual work proposal in consultation with an academic staff member. This proposal forms the basis of a self-directed curriculum addressing the concepts, methodologies and technologies integral to the individual student's developing art practice. Each student's creative development will be supported by access to academic staff consultations. These consultations focus on the conceptual and creative aspects of a student's studio work. The elective provides for the development and enhancement of critical skills through group and individual tutorials and critiques.
