The Sculpture and Environmental Art course is located in a purpose-built school of art. In the spacious fine art studios and specialist workshops (metal, wood, glass, ceramics, bronze foundry) you will have the opportunity to develop a sustainable practice. The specialisation of Sculpture and Environmental Art aims to offer you the opportunity to concentrate on sculptural practices and artistic responses towards the environment, including psycho-geographical approaches.
As a Sculpture and Environmental Art student you will be encouraged to develop your ideas by investigating the potential of materials and spaces available in the school and its immediate surroundings. You will develop an understanding of contemporary sculpture and environmental art practice, through experiment, research and critical thinking. You will consider making work in response to a context or site, and in the public realm. You will have the opportunity to acquire skills in modes of practice ranging from traditional through to contemporary media and processes, from object-making, through construction, carving, casting, to time-based practices such as video, performance, installation, site-specific and digitally generated work.
