Building on Studio Studies 4, the expectation is that students have established an independent studio program and begun to consolidate and resolve the aesthetic, conceptual and practical developments in their work. Consideration and preparation for the end of year Graduate Exhibition and the Honours Year is emphasised. The professional practice component focuses on the practical application of procedures, practices and protocols to equip students with the necessary skills and knowledge to have an understanding of the broader arts industry and to function as practising professional artists.
