Introduces basic materials and routines relating to a chosen studio area. Fundamental skills and media manipulation, equipment usage and occupational health and safety issues are addressed. Underlying conceptual concerns and critical thinking are addressed.
The unit introduces students to studio routines and procedures in two different studio areas. Building on ART00621, students will undertake 2 x 6 weeks of study of a studio discipline each session, reflecting on:
- Technical, conceptual and theoretical frameworks
- Studio skills and techniques and equipment usage
- Media investigations and applications
- Composition and design strategies
- Visual arts research strategies
- Journal keeping
- Professional language and terminology
- Critical analysis in visual arts practice
- Health and safety issues
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
