This course builds on and further develops a range of skills, competencies and understanding to enable the student to resolve, communicate and produce original creative works.
The course is based on an Individual Work Proposal (IWP) and the shaping of this and the creative works is supported though group sessions across several disciplines as well as tutorials, demonstrations and discussions within each Workshop.
In addition to developing a cohesive body of work in a media related to the relevant Workshop, students will develop skills in writing and speaking about their work, and in presenting work in a professional setting. Students will learn how to research and articulate the context of their work, including theoretical, historical and critical frameworks.
Work health and safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course and will be handled within each Workshop.
This course is delivered by the following School of Art & Design disciplines: Ceramics, Furniture, Glass, Jewellery and Object, and Textiles.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
demonstrate skill in planning and executing an independent project and create a body of work that is suitable for exhibition;
develop, research and evaluate concepts and processes through creative, critical and reflective thinking;
articulate and link the concepts and techniques underpinning the project; and
demonstrate a comprehensive awareness of related historical, critical and theoretical contexts of the project.
