Demands an expression of the synthesising which occurred throughout the studio work and so results in a 'conclusion' in the form of an argument for the cultural significance of the work.

  1. have competence in documenting their visual work with critical reflections on the process and outcome of their studio work;
  2. be able to sustain against critical scrutiny the relationship between the stated intentions of their proposal and the results of the studio work;
  3. be able to evaluate and explain the visual achievements, and justify the claim of the work making an artistic contribution of substantial significance;
  4. be able critically to review insights into the artistic process suggested by the visual research.


Preliminary work on paper: 25%
Paper concerning the documentation of achievements (5000 words): 75%
