Deals directly with the issues related to mixed media, multi-media installation and environmental artworks and offers many opportunities for creative expression within a contemporary framework. Through the use of set and self-directed projects the workshops will emphasise individual development and preference in 3-D studies. Mixed and multi media installation and environmental art works are embraced as contemporary Sculpture activity. Inter-disciplinary techniques and processes are explored and offer opportunity for experimentation. Drawing is seen as an integral aspect of 3-D artwork.
