An experientially based program of lectures and field trips surveying concepts of art, natural environment and wilderness, and their role in the representation of Tasmanian landscape.
The unit has four ambitions in terms of student response. The first is a working journal that documents all lectures, guest speakers' presentations, as well as individual sketches and responses to/from the field trips. The second is a written research project of 1000 words that functions as a link between the experiences gained during the unit and the artwork created. The third element is an expressive artwork developed through the student's major study, and the fourth is a generous degree of active engagement in the unit's discourse and debate.
Journal (30%); practical artwork project (40%); 1,250-word research/interpretation paper (30%)
TEACHING PATTERN: 2x4-day field trips; weekly tutorials (13 wks)
