Synopsis

This unit introduces students who are not taking painting as a major study to the practice and theory of Painting as a means of contemporary creative expression. By providing the means to achieve an initial level of competence within the Painting discipline it forms a sound conceptual and technical basis for an ongoing continuing study in Painting. It also lays the groundwork for developing interdisciplinary approaches and extending the discipline of Painting into wider fields of practice.

Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. have explored a wide range of processes that derive from or relate to painting: collage, processed and found images, mixed media, and new and lens based media;
  2. have developed and tested new painterly strategies;
  3. have considered their work in the context of historical and current visual art practices;
  4. have basic skills in the materials and methods appropriate to their chosen expressive outcomes;
  5. understand and apply the principles of occupational health and safety practices in the studio.
