Studio 1: Re-establishment of Studio Practice is designed to re-establish and situate your existing practice.
Studio 2: Developing Studio Practice, you'll be encouraged to pay greater attention to the exhibition element of your practice. In Aspects of Contemporary Art Practice you’ll develop relevant research methods and advanced reflective research.
Studio 3: Advanced Studio Practice is a double module with the aim that you’ll carry out a proposal developed in previous modules.
An individual programme of studio work, negotiated with staff, will re-establish and then develop your work to professional, exhibiting level. Progress is guided by scheduled and optional group and individual tutorials, and by group critiques of work led by academic staff.
Assessment of each stage of the studio element of the course is by exhibition and all related materials together with an advanced written reflective statement. The research modules are assessed by an oral/visual presentation made by the student of their practitioner ‘position’ at the Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma stage.
