Students learn to understand the various processes and materials used within studio practice considering the idea of Studio Practice as Material Idea. Students build technical, analytical and research skills within all visual arts areas including the studio disciplines: painting, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture and drawing. The course offers workshops and critiques as well as lectures and discussions on contemporary art and craft practice. The work of established professional artists is analysed in order to increase student insight into their own practice.
The visual language and studio research used at this level will be commensurate with skill-development.
NOTE: Both ON-CAMPUS and EXTERNAL courses will be underpinned by history and theory lectures in associated visual arts courses. For ONCAMPUS students, students will undertake WH&S induction and employ the safe handling of materials, processes and equipment.
