Overview of Learning Activities

Details of Learning Activities

In the first weeks of the Program and in negotiation with supervising academic staff students will develop an initial Project Proposal document. The Project document will foreshadow research paths to be undertaken by the student and will be formally reviewed by the student and supervising academic staff midway through the Semester. Through the course of the Semester the Project document will be formed to infer areas of proposed conceptual investigation, practice based enquires and will scope and link all studio based Courses and activities undertaken by the student. Research, reflections, and appropriate notes resulting from access to Theory Courses will also be developed within the Project document.

Individual and group tutorials in Printmaking will reflect on the development of studio practice in relation to each student’s individual Project document.

Teaching Schedule

Week 1 to 14: Studio based individual and group tutorial advice.
Week 15 and 16: Individual tutorial advice relating to the development of the proposed installation of prints for assessment.
Week 17: Printmaking installation
Week 18: Assessment

Assessment Tasks

Students will present a substantial and resolved body of work (folio), informed by the research undertaken within the Project document, demonstrating an informed and thoughtful approach to exhibition practice. Assessment will be conducted by a panel of Academic staff, in turn providing a written response to the student relating to the overall folio presentation. The written response from the Assessment panel will reflect on the intrinsic nature of the folio in relation to all areas of studio practice, installation and exhibition practice, in turn reflecting the conceptual investigation and research undertaken within the Project document.
