Why choose this course?
You will focus on beginning to develop your own art practice, working with a variety of media. Staff will help you develop your own interests and ideas. Introductory workshops will be provided in both digital and traditional art-making skills and you will also develop skills in visual analysis. You will be introduced to a wide range of art practices both in the studio and in history/theory classes.
Building on your skills and knowledge from your first year, you will continue to develop your art practice using a range of media and your knowledge of contemporary art. Your skills in visual and textual analysis will develop, as will your understanding of national and international art. You will contextualise your art practice through presentations, discussions and supported practical experience in display and exhibition. If you want to become a teacher or art professional, you will begin undertaking specific vocational training towards your career goal.
In your final year, you will continue to consolidate your art practice and build your understanding of its place in the Australian and international context. For those intending to become practising artists, the year will culminate in a public group exhibition. Your final year of study will allow for specialisation, helping you enter the real world of the arts industry or in honours and postgraduate research.
