Subject Overview:

Students in the third year of the BFA work towards their final folio presentation and either entry into further study or professional activity. The program of individual tutorials is directed towards assisting students to develop methods, forms and a context for their demonstrated and/or stated interests. The group tutorials, contact with visiting artists, exhibitions and excursions provide the opportunity for critical comparison and understanding of personal ambitions and influences. Professional Practice again forms a key element of these semesters as does advanced technical training, if required. Working from an individual studio space students have access to all areas of the Sculpture Department. Supervised studio hours are to be spent in research and development of ideas and forms and the role of staff is to assist each student in the discovery of a rich and informed foundation for future work.
