Figurative Sculpture Diploma- 2 years Full Time, 4 years Part Time
The Figurative Sculpture Diploma (FSD) is a unique two-year bespoke course, offered by the Art Academy. Students follow a structured programme of study that gives them a thorough introduction to a wide range of technical and creative skills that they will need to create successful figurative sculptures. Students will work in a range of materials and styles, developing these according to personal preference. The course helps students to acquire both traditional and contemporary figurative sculpture skills, whilst encouraging individuals to develop their own sculptural language.
