Studio Practice 3A FSX313


You will be coached in the generation of ideas for art projects through speculative play and experimentation. You will develop an independent Project Proposal through iterations of research, making and reflection. You will develop your creative research practice and learn how to refine your intellectual, cultural and contextual interests in the creation of new work. You may continue to work within a specific medium or as your exploration dictates adopt other media and processes. You will participate in critical and analytical discourse and media expertise that is both in-depth and generalised.
