Background:

The department is one of the oldest at the Margaret Trowell School of Industrial and Fine Arts. That houses both Sculpture and Drawing as progressive and interdependent courses of fine Art.

The sculpture and Drawing curriculum prepares students to think independently and critically, to gain a command of the technical processes inherent to sculpture as a means of realizing ideas and to develop a true understanding of sculptural and drawing issues.

The courses emphasize technical skills as well as essential concepts within the drawing and sculpture tradition. As juniors, students begin to identify areas of personal interest and intensify their investigations. Work becomes increasingly self-motivated and self-directed as a senior and culminates in a Major work and a thesis that expresses ability, initiative and direction.

Throughout the entire program of study, students are guided and challenged by a committed faculty and exposed to a wide range of work and philosophies by visiting artists, critics and an active community of peers.
