This course is a developed structured enquiry into the expressive potential of three-dimensional (3D) creativity. It provides students with basic skills in a range of materials and processes in the studio areas of ceramics, fibres-textiles or sculpture, highlighting the significance of 3D practices and encouraging multidisciplinary investigation. This foundation experience develops the cultural, historical, contemporary, theoretical and conceptual dimensions of these art forms.
Availability2018 Course Timetables
- Semester 2 - 2018
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Create, from a variety of materials, and by a variety of means, developed visually resolved 3D forms.
2. Explore and apply a wide variety of 3D studio specific tools and materials confidently, competently and safely while engaged in 2D processes both in tutorials and through independent research
3. Demonstrate a developed knowledge of the cultural, historical and contemporary contexts of 3D forms
4. Contextualise their own work materially and theoretically through an analysis of other artists' 3D forms
- The processes of 3D art making are undertaken through a variety of themes and approaches exploring and understanding physical and conceptual material.
- Exploration of the elements and principles of 3D art: including materials and technology; mass/volume; shape/form/structure; moulding; construction; Occupational Health and Safety.
- Facilitate interest in the creative possibilities of ceramics, fibres- textiles or sculpture practices.
- An investigation of visual language and related History/Theory within a contemporary 3D framework to develop fundamental critical and analytical skills.
