This is a foundational course in the concepts of visual art. The course will introduce students to different ways in which art can be 'seen', exploring aesthetics, art history, cultural theory and their practical applications. Students will research, identify and investigate the cultural connections that are drawn between objects and their cultural, aesthetic and practical contexts. In doing so, students will establish methods of seeing or reading visual content within a broader cultural landscape, with an emphasis on the role of varied ideologies, perception and critique.
