Unit aim

The unit promotes further conceptual and material development through interdisciplinary exchange and fabrication procedures. Theoretical understanding of contemporary collaborative art practices will be used to underpin the associated projects. Students will continue to develop their material and conceptual curiosity into their idiosyncratic art language. The theme for this unit is ‘Collaboration'.

  • Gallery and exhibition skills will be further addressed
  • Individual approaches to artistic expression
  • Studio investigations, mixed-media and installation strategies
  • Pictorial/object design and production
  • Artistic criticism
  • Work Health and Safety

Learning outcomes

These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 produce individual artworks which draw on well-grounded studio practice and sensitive use of materials
2 demonstrate competent skills in student's chosen area of self-expression
3 demonstrate experimentation and investigation within their own work with evidence of focus on specific themes and technologies
4 develop collaboration skills that may contribute to creative projects.
