Content

In this 2-credit point unit, students will engage in creative practice inquiry in order to apply and enhance creative process skills such as thinking through making, critical discursive practices, and the iterative nature of artistic practice. The principle focus is to enable students to better understand the means through which they might initiate and establish a creative practice approach to research through small-scale practical creative outcomes.

Students will participate in practical exercises and be expected contribute to the culture of the studio through active participation and in the exercising of critical thinking within the process of creative practice inquiry, and in the presentation to peers.

Over the course of the trimester, students will deepen their understanding of the context of the creative practice experiments (e.g. situating the work within relevant contemporary discourses and the real world). Learning occurs in studio workshops and is supported by practical homework, reading, writing, discussion, viewing others’ work, and maintaining a critical journal.
