Open Art is designed to introduce, familiarise and induct students into workshops and labs within the School of Art. Students undertake 2x6 week classes in workshops and labs other than their designated studio. Practical and conceptual lines of enquiry are examined through set projects in classes and workshops. This subject offers students the opportunity for an immersive, experiential exploration of concepts through a range of traditional and new media technologies. Classes and workshops will offer students relevant practical information designed to stimulate and develop technical skills and diverse modes of enquiry. Projects are designed to complement and underpin individual studio-based research in the first year of study.
Students enrolled in Open Art will subsequently via the portal’s online class registration process (opens 4 weeks before classes commence), choose the 2 different studio areas outside of their own discipline. It is important to register as soon as possible. The selectives will only run if registration numbers are sufficient. Additionally, please note that registration quotas apply to each selective, to maximise the studio immersion.
Block choices change annually, with more detailed information about each selective being made available in on School and Department noticeboards.
