Subject Overview: Students prepare a proposal for a program of studio practice appropriate to their needs. Emphasis is on consolidation of the advances made through experimentation within a graduate diploma course or the research of an honours year or equivalent experiences, the clarification of personal concerns and the focussing of studio activity. Guidance and assistance is provided through group and individual tutorials.

Note: An individual supervisor is assigned to overview the student's development over the semester.

The Studio Seminar Each student is asked to present an exhibition of works in progress in the Postgraduate student gallery and to partake of a formal seminar where two of their cohort are nominated to present written responses to the art works presented (this is a public forum). In general the Studio seminar explores critically each students selected studio output and the attendant technical, aesthetic, personal, social and cultural implications. Each student is required to present a work-in-progress exhibition in the Postgraduate gallery, supported by a seminar presentation related to the work.
