NCEA Level 3 Visual Arts Sculpture

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms V. Sandes

Students will develop and extend their practical and conceptual knowledge of sculptural 3-dimensional practices through the process of research, drawing, production of maquettes (models) and finished sculptural works. Which may include object-based, installation-based and performance-based approaches. Students will be required to explore an individual programme of their choosing, with the aim of producing an external 3-panel folio of related work.

During the year students will be introduced to a number of different casting techniques and sculptural production modes. Students new to the subject will be taught the principles of sculpture and how to apply these to the production of original work.

Students wishing to pursue a career in fine arts, industrial design, architecture, animation or the film industry (model making), will find that this course provides the process and procedures necessary for a 3-dimensional inquiry.
