Synopsis

This Metals and jewellery 3B unit extends the rigorous program to broaden students' awareness of concepts and techniques across a range of approaches, and further encourage them to seek appropriate solutions. Continued research and investigation of materials and processes fosters the acquisition of technical language, and influences appropriate choices to realise concepts within the context of a developing personal visual language. The emphasis is more on self-motivated approaches than on set projects. Teaching methods therefore tend to concentrate on individual tuition and group critique.

Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. develop further their awareness of practical aesthetic and technical systems or theories and the skills related to them
  2. possess superior manipulative skills in their chosen area of self expression
  3. have increased their perceptual skills and critical sensibility necessary for the development of a personal visual language
  4. develop further their own conceptual and expressive strengths in relation to historical and current visual art practices
  5. be more familiar with current issues in Metals and Jewellery and recognise the potential to produce works within the framework of contemporary culture
  6. be more capable of applying elements and principles of design to an increased range of studio situations and objectively analyse and synthesise design options within a Metals and Jewellery context
  7. demonstrate effective communication skills and be able to share their work through well-researched class papers and competent critiques of the work of oneself and of other artists
  8. understand and practise the rules of occupational health and safety in force in the Metals and Jewellery studio, and be able to collaborate and co-operate safely and productively within the studio environment.
