Course Description

In Advanced Studio courses students are given the opportunity to extend upon aspects of previous studio courses. Students negotiate a workload with their lecturer focused around achieving specific material and conceptual objectives within one of the Fine Art studio areas. A student’s course of study is structured around developmental supervision on a one to one basis with their lecturer as well as undergoing constructive and critical analysis in a forum context with other staff and students. Students are able to develop material skills, reflexive and research facilities in specialised aspects of their practice, facilitating transition to self-supervised art practice and/or post graduate research.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

On completion of the program you will have gained the capabilities to communicate effectively via artistic production in a range of media and modes, with awareness of and sensitivity to a range of contexts and cultures. This course offers flexibility and provides you with:
•    the ability to find creative solutions to constraints and challenges
•    the capacity for critical reflection and reflective arts practice, in order to continually develop, change and plan for a future that is both informed and improved by arts practice
•    the ability to invent, design and construct a pro-active and critically relevant career as a member of the cultural and creative industries
•    the capacity for autonomous and continued learning, with the ability to apply new theories of practice and embrace new developments in cultural/artistic production
•    the capacity to form, develop and implement a vision and philosophy of art as a profession, contributing to the positive development of culture in both local and international contexts

During your course of study in Advanced Studio you will develop the ability to:
• Use specialist skills in one, or a combination of disciplines.
• Plan and Develop projects relevant to their area of interest.
• Identify and develop meaningful conceptual frameworks and cultural reference points for their studio practice.
• Analyse the development of their project(s) to refine strategies and techniques.
• Apply the outcomes of their research to develop expansive and critical studio methodologies.

Overview of Learning Activities

In consultation with their supervising lecturer students formulate a project proposal within the first 3 weeks of semester. From this proposal key technical and conceptual milestones are identified and placed within a timeline for the project’s successful completion and a plan is developed to facilitate these objectives. Students are instructed in skills as dictated by the parameters of the Project, directed to appropriate resources and encouraged to undertake independent research in the area suggested by the focus of their project. All aspects of the Project are reviewed and may be refined over the course of the semester.

Overview of Learning Resources

Requirements will vary depending on the specific nature of the project undertaken and students will be directed to appropriate resources by their supervising lecturer.

Overview of Assessment

Students will be expected to submit a completed project at the end of semester and give a detailed account of their methodology and it’s conceptual and thematic underpinning. The project is reviewed throughout the course of the semester; taking in all phases of the projects proposal, development, execution, and completion.
