Painting 2A FSP211


This unit will develop a range of media and methods defined by the discipline of Painting as appropriate to an intermediate level. You will engage with a wide variety of art practices and artists from historical and contemporary contexts to determine appropriate strategies for the creation of painterly artworks. You will learn to handle and apply paint, to experiment with possibilities of this medium, and to become familiar with its implications as an on-going creative strategy. You will lay the intermediate foundations of a studio-based practice. Through self-determined project work and set tasks you will learn to take concepts and ideas through various stages of visual development to a final resolution.

As part of this you will also learn to discuss, reflect upon and critique your own work as well as the work of others in terms of context, content and form. In studio and workshop sessions you will learn to take an idea through to a finished stage through experimentation, exploration and research.
