VIS4000 Studio Practice and Project Development (FOART)

Semester 1 (ONC)Toowoomba

Units 1.0 (100300) Band 1

Pre-requisite: Students must be enrolled in BVAH or BCAH


Students undertaking the Honours program in Visual Arts will normally explore studio-based practice. Studio selection will be based on proven expertise in one or more of the areas offering specialization: ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking, spatial construction, providing suitable supervision and studio space is available. Studio practice should indicate a clear emergence of an individual visual language as well as a high level of technical and artistic competence. Students will submit a comprehensive project proposal outlining both the concept and practice of their particular visual field. The context of their research is a significant factor. This should take into account personal and studio positions in relation to Australian and international concerns. Appropriate historical underpinnings should be linked to concepts of contemporary theoretical thinking. The Project Development proposal should also include a selection of comprehensive supportive drawings, photographs, marquettes, folios, etc of the work in progress as well as an indication of the final exhibition format.
