Fine art studio subjects are the backbone of the learning experience, enabling you to develop an individual fine art practice. You’ll navigate these studios over six semesters to establish a sustained practice.
Multiple studio options are offered each semester. These studio options are thematic and/or focused on a specific studio specialisation, allowing a variety of ways for you to discover and develop your own individual art practice. You will ballot for your first three studio preferences based on your personal interests.
Discover and develop your skills to assist in the investigation of ideas and creative interpretations.
In first semester you’ll participate in an independent introductory studio, to create a smooth transition for first year students.
In second semester you will enrol in vertical classes that combine first and second year students for studios, workshops and art history, theory and cultures.
Experiment within a framework of self-directed projects, supported by subjects designed to further your conceptual, technical and critical thinking skills. Student exchange opportunities are available to students in this year.
Your studio, workshop and art theory subjects will be delivered in vertical classes, alongside first, second or third year students. You’ll have an opportunity to enrol in a University Elective in second semester to add breadth to your study.
Your third year will primarily focus on an advanced capstone studio project, where you’ll consolidate your learning and develop a body of work at a professional level.
Parallel with your individual studio project, you’ll gain an understanding of professional and business practices that relate to being a contemporary artist through the Art Enterprise Workshop. You’ll be introduced to enterprise formation opportunities and arts industry networks to establish yourself as an independent art practitioner.
