Unit of study_

Painting 4 - CAPA3001

Year - 2020

The primary focus of the final year program is the consolidation of your own creative practice. Within this unit of study, integrating theory and practice, you are expected to work on independent and self-directed projects that continue to develop and extend ideas you initiated in second year. These projects allow you to develop your creative practice through emerging research interests, and produce work that shows a greater understanding of your particular artistic concerns. You are actively involved in a learning process that foregrounds creative problem solving and conceptual and critical skill development. Learning in this unit combines critical reflection and sustained interaction with lecturers and fellow students. A program of studio seminars, individual tutorials, studio critiques and gallery visits provides the framework for learning. You continue work on your artist's statement and begin work for the graduate exhibition. Student evaluation and feedback are ongoing with assessments half way and at the end of semester.
