Course content

Through an unlimited choice of materials, situations, contexts, possibilities and subject matter, students are encouraged to take risks within their own practice and to pursue highly individual lines of inquiry. Performance, text, sound, process, drawing, photography, film and video, are all understood to be integral aspects of contemporary sculptural practice. Whatever position is held by a student, or is evident within their practice, the emphasis for the conceptual aspect of the pathway is on experimentation, spontaneity, trial and error, while ultimately aiming for the further development of research and ideas into works of art.
