Principal Studio 4 (2D or 3D or Photomedia)

Course code AART3270Units 10Level 3000Faculty of Education and ArtsSchool of Creative Arts

This final core 3000 level course emphasises sustained investigation, experimentation and analysis of the student's creative endeavors within a 2D or 3D or Photomedia framework. Students progressively assume 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. This is an important culminating study, highlighting independence and self-directed creative growth with respect to processes and conceptual clarity.

Students are prepared for postgraduate studies and are encouraged to explore avenues for professional practice.
