Sculpture is a great way to expand your creative design skills. An introduction of practical and theoretical aspects of Sculpture is provided as you explore a range of traditional and experimental ways of working in 3 dimensions. Engage in several projects, working progressively to the creation of a sculpture in concrete grout. Each project will encourage a playful, uninhibited approach to materials and processes. Sculptures, drawings and photographs produced during the course can be used as the basis for a portfolio for entrance into academic study at the ANU Sculpture Workshop.
