Offering a range of leading art processes and methods, this unit promotes the continuing conceptual development and material investigation through painting, sculpture, print and photomedia, drawing, interdisciplinary exchange, material and fabrication procedures. Studio projects are introduced based on theories of contemporary art practices, collaborative practices and individual modes of research outcomes. Students will develop inventive and sustainable solutions to a series of projects that will enable them to continue to develop a personal methodology and artistic language. The theme for this unit is 'Artists Making Artists' - students research a contemporary artist and take influence from their methods.
- Influence and strength from research in art
- Personal expression and communication through material
- Advanced studio procedures and skill development
- Multi-modal understanding of art development
- Individual projects and expression
- Work health and safety
