This course is built around an individually negotiated semester-long project, 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 18u course allows students to carry out a 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, manage and bring a substantial studio based research project to resolution

2. develop an experimental and analytical methodology  

3. Critically engage with relevant historical and theoretical debates

4. Evaluate  their own work and the work of others 

5. articulate an investigation's key concerns and contextual framework

 

Other Information

The progressive outcomes of the studio practice based courses are assessed by periodic critique plus mid-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, the mid-semester reviews will provide indicative advice on a student's achievement against the criteria, and the end of semester presentation will assess the final outcomes against the agreed requirements of course projects.

 

Indicative Assessment

Practice-led research proposal: 10% - [LO 1,2] (due week 2, or end of week 1 of intensive mode), [1800 - 2400 weds]

Studio Journal and critical reflection: 20% - [LO 4, 5] (due week 15, or 3 weeks after intensice mode period) (reflection: 2400 - 3000wds)

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