13 Art Sculpture
Teacher in Charge: Mrs J. Bishop
Sculpture is an exciting and diverse visual arts course, highly reflective of current contemporary art practice. We place a high emphasis on contemporary and experimental modes of engaging with three-dimensional form and communicating ideas in a three-dimensional way.
Sculpture students will work with diverse and unique materials. Sculptural ideas can often be expressed through relevant sub-disciplines such as ceramic and clay art, performance art, sound art, video/time-based art, social-practice art, and installation art. In using a visual diary and referring to an extensive and exciting range of contemporary sculptors, students will research, explore, generate and clarify their ideas. Students will learn how to select and use a wide range of sculpture materials in ways that best explore thematic questions and communicate ideas.
Adaptive, innovative and creative problem solving are key attributes that students who take this course tend to adopt quickly. These skills are highly relevant to a diverse range of tertiary and career pathways that are project and/or research based.
