Painting 2A FSP214

Hobart, Launceston

Introduction

This unit focuses on the development and deployment of concepts and ideas through a variety of image-making strategies using paint as the primary medium. While you will deal with many of the more traditional issues surrounding painting, you might also employ new technologies, or other non-conventional processes.

Studio 2A will diversify and broaden your capacity to understand and engage with diverse materials, methodologies and processes associated with contemporary painting practice. Through group and individual tasks you will develop your ability to collaborate and experiment with materials, iterative process and idea development.

The emphasis is on iterative approaches to exploring pictorial space and image construction with a view to developing an innovative and inquiring work practice. Through the guidance of staff, students are encouraged to develop independent learning (and thinking) strategies towards the development of individual expression and self- directed learning.
