Students will be given the structure to pursue a studio based, individually researched visual project that will provide an opportunity to produce paintings in a variety of contemporary modes. These range from the traditional to an awareness of the diverse new hybridized forms. Unit guidelines provide a conceptual context for personal exploration in paint, which centres on independent thinking and research and the articulation of that work through a coherent body of paintings.

Students will encounter critical analysis in a studio practice setting, providing the opportunity of extending their ideas combined with a greater understanding of current visual practice. The independent research and exploration at third level will also give students the skills and initiative to pursue their own direction or engage in further studies.
