Course handbook


This 2000 level course provides an important expansion of understanding and application of multi-media possibilities within and across such areas as 2D or 3D or photomedia. Students will be exposed to contemporary attitudes and approaches to art-making which often cross traditional boundaries of practice.

Students will engage with exploratory and experimental approaches to contemporary ideas, source imagery and creative applications across a range of 2D, 3D and photomedia art practices. Emphasis is placed on independent thinking and problem solving of relevance to the contemporary practitioner.
