SCLP 210 F001: Making, Meaning, Materials

This studio course provides students with production skills and relevant contexts pertaining to the field of contemporary sculpture. Students will learn about a range of traditional and non-traditional materials and processes, including digital technologies, used in sculpture practice. Through engagement with wood, metal, moldmaking and casting, and flexible materials (soft sculpture), students will engage with contemporary approaches to sculpture and develop studio projects in response to a variety of themes and concerns within contemporary and historical sculpture, which may include repetition (multiples), systems and structures, installation environments, the social sphere, and figuration. Seminars including slide presentations as well as group critiques and discussions will familiarize students with the critical issues, ideas, and approaches in the field of sculpture and will develop students' ability to contextualize their own work in relation to contemporary sculpture practices.

Priority is given to CRCP, ILUS and VIAR students in Year 2. Students outside of the registration priority group may register/waitlist for this course as of the registration rule release date.
