Students will study in three 2D studios: Painting, Printmaking and Drawing. This is an introductory course suitable for anyone who has a passion or interest in developing their skills and understanding of visual art practice. Students will be introduced to fundamental practical skills and processes in each of the three studio areas. Across this course, students will begin to form an understanding of how the development of skills and applied processes is underpinned by a foundational approach to artist research, ideas development and analytical thinking. This course will offer a range of lectures, workshop tutorials, critiques, consults and discussions, which will support the initial development of student practice and ideas.

Due to the range of possible intensives or workshops, to gain credit for these activities, students must seek and obtain pre-approval from the discipline co-ordinator of visual arts.

On campus students will be required to undertake relevant WH&S inductions and employ the safe handling of materials, processes and equipment.
