Building on Studio Studies 2, students are expected to be more responsible for the direction of their work. Individual development is encouraged and the lecturer's role becomes increasingly one of facilitating independent art practice. At this level sustained exploration and experimentation with materials, procedures and methodologies of practice is expected. Students are also expected to be increasingly familiar and conversant with the historical and contemporary influences that inform their work. The introduction of the professional practice component begins to prepare students for the realities of independent professional artistic activity.

Intended learning outcomes

This subject should enable students to:

  • Continue development and consolidation of studio based artistic practice;
  • Continue development of sustained work practice through application of effective time management strategies;
  • Establishment of the foundations for ongoing development of experimental work practices and research methods;
  • Emphasis is placed on the extension of conceptual skills, and deepening the understanding of the student's chosen area of study;
  • Extend ability to critically analyse and evaluate personal artist processes and resolutions.

At the completion of the subject students should be able to:

  • demonstrate capacities for artistic imagination, creativity, transformation and interpretation;
  • demonstrate practical skills in respect of critical analysis, problem solving, report writing, team work and oral and written communication;
