In this course students will explore the relationships between visual arts themes and areas of medium-specific practice. Students will learn how to direct their personal ideas, developing skills while identifying and articulating contextual links. The outcomes for this course will be the development and shaping of a personal methodology culminating in the creation of new works.
Based on an Independent Work Proposal (IWP), students will explore and develop creative works relevant to their chosen project. Students will be supported though group sessions across several disciplines as well as tutorials, demonstrations, and discussions within each Workshop.
The strength of this course rests in its integration of traditional skills learning and contemporary approaches to visual arts practice. A student's documentation and communication of their project's evolution will be integral to their studies. A weekly and cross-disciplinary forum will provide for critical and contextual discussions relevant to their academic and visual arts development.
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 thorough knowledge of the processes, terminology, forms, and materials relevant to the selected Workshop, and apply skills and knowledge to the making of creative works;
- work independently and/or collaboratively in a Workshop environment in response to project demands;
- develop and evaluate concepts and processes by thinking creatively, critically, and reflectively;
- demonstrate high level competencies and understanding in relation to speaking and writing about the independent project; and
- reflect on social, ethical, cultural, technological, and environmental issues of creative practice considering local and international perspectives.
