The Visual Art specialisation offers students, under the guidance of their supervisor, an opportunity to combine rigorous creative investigation with practice-led research skills – interlocking critical curiosity and creative enquiry to encourage a deeper understanding and capacity as contemporary visual artists and thinkers. The Visual Art specialisation introduces students to practice-led research skills and methodologies to underpin and support the creation of a major creative work and a related research paper.
The Visual Art specialisation seeks to introduce students of proven ability and aptitude to research training – developing their critical inquisitiveness, creative drive, and capacity to devise, define and manage a major creative research project. The Visual Art specialisation aims to produce innovative, ethical, critically engaged creative practitioners.
