Students are encouraged to explore their ideas and concepts and investigate and experiment with a range of materials and processes. Students are expected to begin to articulate and discuss their work and the work of others in a contemporary visual art context. The component of methods and materials introduces the students to fundamental tools, skills, techniques and working processes of their particular discipline and emphasises safe work practices.
