The module will enable students to learn a variety of approaches to making through a sequence of thematic workshops.
Technical inductions, with accompanying seminars, will develop students’ ability to select appropriate modes of practice for their ideas and effectively apply them in relation to their wider practice.
Workshops and seminars will introduce students to four thematic aspects of fine art practice, and, through these, provide students with a portfolio of strategies for fine art making:
Time: (e.g. film, soundworks, performance, digital media)
Construction: (e.g. assemblage, casting, excavation, props)
Image: (e.g. photograph, print, painting, screens)
Site: (e.g. site-specific artwork; theatre and scenography; exhibition; event)
The module is divided according to these thematic aspects, with an interim assessed presentation of documented learning through workshops and accompanying seminars; leading to an assessment exhibition of a body of work relating to students’ learning in practical workshops and seminars: e.g. sketchbooks, texts, prints, paintings films, objects, installations, sound works photographic documentation.
