VSA1004 Introduction to Studio Research

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts
School or Department : School of Arts and Communication


This course will offer students a foundational introduction to how artists work as studio researchers; how they understand their studio practice as research, and how this understanding can be supported by traditional research methods. The course also examines artist's writings and reflects on how they write, not only about their own practice, but also the practice of other artists, and cultural production in general. The skills developed in this course will have broader application for the student, ultimately assisting with studio research and writing throughout their degree.
