Courses & Units

Studio Practice 3B FSX312


In this unit you will develop and apply a contextual narrative for a body of resolved work suitable for public exhibition and display. You will engage in the processes and strategies of refinement, which can include iteration, material manipulation, reflection and editing. You may continue to work within a specific medium or as your project dictates, adopt other media and processes. You will participate in critical and analytical discourse and media expertise that is both in-depth and generalised. The culmination of this unit will be the development and articulation of an art practice folio that is ready for public dissemination.
