Students will learn to research key information on historical and contemporary artists and their use of sculptural processes. Sculpture will be discussed and situated within contemporary culture.
The broad base of study here provides the foundation for further studies involving 3D forms and material processes. It provides the basis for the understanding of, and engagement with manual sculptural techniques and their critique.
Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Employ a variety of manual sculptural processes including, modelling, casting, assemblage and reduction to create three-dimensional forms;
2. Review the use of sculptural processes, media and techniques;
3. Identify key information on historical and contemporary artists and their use of sculptural processes;
4. Produce a group of resolved, three-dimensional forms that demonstrate control of a diverse range of sculptural techniques and processes; and
5. Employ written communication skills in a professional and/or academic context.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
TAFE Queensland applies the following amendments to the late submission procedures detailed in Section 9.12.48 of the Assessment Policy and Procedures handbook.
All work must be completed and submitted by the due date. Applications for an extension may be made on the grounds of verifiable circumstances and must be submitted formally via email to the unit convener using the Assignment Extension Form. Students should apply for extensions as early as possible before the due date. Applications made after the due date will only be considered under extenuating circumstances.
Work submitted after the due date without an approved extension will be assessed on a pass or fail basis without feedback.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Students must maintain a satisfactory level of attendance. Attendance below 80% may adversely affect your ability to complete the unit at a satisfactory level. Students are expected to attend and actively participate in all lectures and tutorials. If a student misses lectures or tutorials, regardless of reason, it may negatively impact upon their final assessment, due to them having missed important educational information and material. Announcements that are made at lectures, and via class email, are deemed to be made to the whole group.
Required IT skills
Students require a general computing skills in applications such as word, PowerPoint and basic internet search capability.
