Principal Studio 3 (2D or 3D or Photomedia)

Course code AART3260Units 10Level 3000Faculty of Education and ArtsSchool of Creative Arts

This core 3000 level course consolidates and refines information, ideas, skills and working attitudes in preparation for developing individual projects and independent research in relation to 2D or 3D or Photomedia art disciplines. The course emphasises independent thinking and problem-solving, leading to the establishment of a sound professional basis of art practice within and across the media of the student's choosing. Students progressively are encouraged to take greater responsibility for a self-directed program that uniquely expresses their concerns and which can be contextualised within the broader framework of contemporary art practice.
