Core Participation Requirements:

For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.

It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability may impact on meeting the requirements of this subject are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and Student Equity and Disability Support:

Subject Overview:

In this subject students are required to develop a self-initiated body of work, focusing upon experimentation with a variety of materials, procedures and methodologies in an open studio situation. In consultation with staff, students are encouraged to further expand their own program by bringing a greater level of critical evaluation to the conceptual, aesthetic and technical considerations in their work. Students are required to articulate, discuss and analyse their work in regular individual and group tutorials and to be familiar with the historical precedents and contemporary influences that inform their work. Students are expected to develop independent work strategies and a mature studio practice with sustained output. As part of the studio subject students are required to participate in Professional Practice. These weekly, discussion-based sessions are designed to develop the students' understanding and appreciation of local and international contemporary art practice and in turn how they might participate in these context(s).

Assessment: Assessment is based on a substantial folio of work demonstrating the range of the student's activities during the semester, including any group of finished works, support work, drawings, journals/sketchbooks, etc. and other material the student chooses to submit (90%). A Professional Practice journal that reflects, develops and evaluates the information and activities covered in the semester together with any other information relevant to the subject (10%).
