Content

Through considering notions of space and landscape, time and materiality students are given the opportunity to focus their practice in painting and drawing or extend their relationship to traditional media through video and installation. This is intended to allow students to both broaden their engagement with the materials and histories of art, but also allow them to explore the relationship between different art making strategies across painting, drawing, installation and video. Students, in response to a series of media handling workshops designed to develop technical skills, are given the same brief/assignment, but elect to work towards different material outcomes. Additionally, in critical seminars, consultations and studio intensive weeks students will be supported in the critical framing and production of their folio works in two major briefs responding to the lived, projected, represented, temporal and contested notion of space. Crucially, in balancing idea and technique, there is a focus on developing a particular set of skills and conceptual approaches that students can use as foundational to their practice in level 2 and 3 units.

Assessment

Journal of written and visual research 2000 words or equivalent 40%, examination of folio of work 60%.
