Sculpture University of the Arts London


BA (Hons) Sculpture at Camberwell College of Arts aims to establish students as confident conceptual and practical makers that value the importance of experimentation and critical thinking. The intention of the course is that students will develop a deep understanding of contemporary sculpture.

What can you expect?
• A dynamic studio-based culture, where students rigorously investigate the potential of materials.
• Practical work complemented by a range of activities including seminars, critiques, talks and gallery visits led by course tutors, international practitioners, artists and curators.
• To test how your artworks are installed, received and understood by participating in an external exhibition with students from across Camberwell’s Fine Art programme.
• To have access to Camberwell's shared workshops.
• In your third year, students have the opportunity to choose between a dissertation, a work placement or live project, such as setting up a solo exhibition.
• A Fine Art lecture series open to all Camberwell undergraduate students studying Drawing, Painting, Photography and Sculpture.

By retaining single subject degrees in Fine Art at undergraduate level, Camberwell offers students the chance to study Painting, Sculpture, Photography and Drawing in-depth, while still enabling students to access cross-course teaching and facilities, as well as work with their peers in other Fine Art areas.

All undergraduate Fine Art students at Camberwell attend cross-course crits and tutorials throughout their course, even though they are primarily based in their own subject areas.
