This subject introduces students to the techniques and processes used in contemporary painting. Through project-based experimentation students are guided through a range of different painting techniques and their application in the production of aesthetically and materially developed artworks. This subject aims to create an informed and critical methodology for the use of contemporary painting technology as a vehicle for imaging ideas. It is also concerned with developing skills and a visual language through a range of painting media.

  • acquire knowledge for the safe handling of painting materials and exhibit a degree of technical proficiency in the manipulation of a range of paint media through studio-based experimentation;
  • display an awareness of the technical possibilities of a variety of materials and practices;
  • exhibit evidence of skill development pictorially, technically and conceptually as a means of independent image making;
  • indicate evidence of individual research in the relevant area of practice.

  • display an awareness of the graphic possibilities of a variety of concepts, materials and practices;
