At this level the emphasis is placed upon the realisation of individual and independent studio practice where the work is self-initiated. Students are expected to have developed skills to critically evaluate their work on all levels in order to facilitate a more informed, focused and directed investigation of their ideas and concerns. Students are required to articulate, discuss and analyse their work in regular individual and group tutorials and to have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the historical and contemporary context of their work. It is anticipated that students have developed independent work strategies and a mature, professional work practice. Professional Practice is delivered in an intensive lecture and tutorial program. Staff and a range of professionals (with specialist expertise) from visual art organisations and other support services discuss, advise and inform the students of procedures, practices and protocols to equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to function as practicing, professional artists.
Assessment is based on a substantial folio of work demonstrating the range of a student's activities during the semester, including any group of finished works, support work, drawings, journals/sketchbooks etc and other works/material in any media the student chooses to submit. For more detailed assessment information refer to your program's subject handouts. Ongoing feedback is provided to students via individual and group tutorials. The mid-semester review takes into account the student's progress against the following criteria:
Formal feedback is given to students who are deemed to be at risk. Academic staff write progress reports during the semester that students sight and sign. A single mark is assigned at the end of the semester
