Studio Practice Courses are built around individually negotiated semester-long projects, based on the practice-led pedagogy employed by the School of Art. This course may be taken in any of the School's Workshops: Ceramics, Furniture, Glass, Gold and Silversmithing, Painting, Photography and Media Arts, Printmedia and Drawing, Sculpture and Textiles. This 12u course allows students to carry out a creative studio research project, define its contextual framework and critically reflect on and evaluate its outcomes.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Plan and manage a major studio based research project.
  2. Develop an experimental and analytical methodology.
  3. Advance initial ideas using studio and allied research methods.
  4. Reflect critically on their own work and the work of others.
  5. Articulate an investigation's key concerns and contextual framework.
  6. Create a body of experimental objects or works.

Other Information

The progressive outcomes of studio practice based courses are assessed by periodic critique plus review sessions and end-of-semester presentation to an assessment panel. Critique sessions will provide advice on work in progress in response to approved projects, reviews will provide indicative advice on a student's achievement, and the end of semester presentation will assess the final outcomes against the agreed requirements of course projects.

Indicative Assessment

Practice-led research project proposal: 10%, [Learning Outcomes 1, 2] - due end Week 2 [1200 - 1600 wds]

Studio Practice Project: 70%, [Learning Outcomes 1, 2, 3, 6] - due week 15

Studio Journal and critical reflection: 20% (reflection: 1600 - 2000 words) [Learning Outcomes 4, 5] - due Week 15

The Critical Reflection analyses and evaluates the project and relates it to its contextual framework.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

Practice-led research courses are conducted at the School of Art in the relevant Workshop studios, or at other locations by agreement between the student and the Course Convenor. Students are expected to spend 8 honours per week undertaking the approved project and attend relevant seminars and critiques as specified by each Workshop. Students are also expected to spend 12 hours per week on readings and research, visiting galleries or on other visual and theoretical research.
