This course is designed to encourage students new to the Masters Program to orientate their creative arts practice in terms of its aesthetic expression. Students will share aesthetic ideas and experiences across all creative arts disciplines.

Aesthetics, expression, imitation, beauty, form, style, content, context and genre are all key elements in creative praxis. The use of these may vary between artistic disciplines, however, these elements bind together to engage how we describe, prescribe and inscribe the practice of art-making. The ways in which art is used to express perceptions of phenomenon from ancient to Marxist aesthetic lenses will be explored. Enrolment is restricted to Masters students, and cross-disciplinary enrolments are encouraged.
