Unit of study_

Painting 3 - CAPA2002

Year - 2020

In this practical unit of study you build on the experience gained in Painting 2. The unit integrates theory and practice in a flexible structure as you expand your knowledge of a broad range of approaches, mediums and cross-disciplinary methodologies as they relate to painting. You further develop your critical and intellectual abilities as you increase your confidence to engage with different social and cultural contexts in the contemporary art world. You undertake individual projects and work more independently, while also further developing your skills through seminars and workshops. In addition to peer group seminars, learning continues through individual and group tuition, and field trips. You continue your development of an artist's statement. Student evaluation and feedback are ongoing with assessments half way and at the end of semester.
