Unit of study_

Painting 5 - CAPA3002

Year - 2020

This unit of study continues the focus on self-directed studio practice established in Painting 4. You are expected to have reached a stage in your education as an artist that enables you to confidently pursue your own self initiated practice to a standard worthy of public exhibition. The production in the studio will consider all aspects of presentation and display of the work within the gallery format. You are encouraged to edit your work for the graduate exhibition, and manifest an original and independent approach to contemporary art. Within this unit there is an increased focus on the development of research led enquiry in relation to the critical, ethical and social dimensions of creative practice. It is expected that you exhibit an in-depth understanding of the historical and theoretical concerns of painting. 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/museum visits provides the framework for learning. You will finalise your artist's statement. Student evaluation and feedback are ongoing with assessments half way and at the end of semester.
