Drawing on the declaration "All artists borrow, great artists steal" this studio-based course explores the diverse ways in which painters have drawn on influences from artists from one another, from other times, and other cultures. This is a studio-based course supplemented by lectures and seminars exploring interesting examples of this kind of cross-fertilization across the history and contemporary practice of painting. In the studio students will explore the work of artists of interest to them as a means of enriching their own practice.
Work health and safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. demonstrate and describe an exploration of a range of processes, techniques, and materials of painting drawn from historical and/or contemporary precedents;
  2. apply appropriate painting skills and knowledge to the development of their individual interests;
  3. reflect on the role of materiality in the generation of meaning and affect in painting; and
  4. experiment with working processes by thinking creatively, critically, and reflectively.
