Sculpture Major

This major is only available to students undertaking the Bachelor of Visual Arts.

The Sculpture major provides students with the skills and knowledge to create works using a wide variety of materials and techniques through studio lessons, projects and independent work.

Development is supported by regular critique and studio theory sessions. The Sculpture Workshop supports an extensive range of plant, tools and equipment and a professional foundry. The expertise of lecturers is complemented by highly trained technical officers and a dynamic program of visiting artists, artists-in-residence and graduates in residence.
