Synopsis: This unit identifies links between technique and expression which allows the student to find coherence of intention, style and meaning. The purpose is to develop a self-assuring vision which directs practice to technical and poetic excellence, with iconography of an appropriately meaningful kind. The unit provides for the student to propose his or her directions at all stages, with the critical guidance of the lecturer.

Objectives: On successful completion of this unit, students will: 1.develop their technique and appreciate the impact that this development has upon their expression; 2.appreciate the relationship between content and technical methods, with special reference to their own visual production; 3.identify and resolve conceptual problems of intention and content in their own work; 4.handle critical views about their work and respond either with suitable changes in practice or counter-arguments which deflect the criticisms.
