Students will learn about various processes, techniques and materials associated with the three-dimensional visual arts studio areas of Sculpture and Ceramics. The practical skills developed in these areas will be underpinned by a foundational approach to artist research, ideas development and analytical thinking. This course will offer a range of lectures, workshop tutorials, critiques and consults which will support the development of the student's contemporary practice, ideas and research. The work of established professional artists will be analysed in order to increase student insight into their own approaches to three-dimensional practice. The visual language, studio research and artist reflection used at this level will be appropriate with skill-development.

Due to the range of possible intensives or workshops, to gain credit for these activities, students must seek and obtain pre-approval from the discipline co-ordinator of visual arts.
