In the Painting 4A unit students become increasingly responsible for the delivery of their major study program, with emphasis placed on independent investigation, and the development of the creative and expressive potential inherent in students' work. This, combined with staff consultation, starts to determine students' focuses for future painting studio work. The emphasis shifts away from set projects towards self-motivated practice and research through which students articulate their conceptual and expressive strengths. Studio practice is still exploratory but with better grasp of theoretical issues relevant to students' practices.
On successful completion of this unit, students should:
- continue to develop their own technical, iconographic and conceptual concerns
- have the skill to identify and engage other artists' work especially relevant to their own work
- have enhanced perceptual skills and critical sensibility
- be able to speak intelligently about their own work and provide constructive critique of the work of others
- have an understanding of the critical, conceptual and theoretical issues surrounding contemporary painting
- practice occupational health and safety procedures in the studio.
Folio of studio work:100%, of which at least 20% will be assessed before mid-semester.
12 hours per week, including four hours of taught studio and eight hours of personal study and studio practice.
