Overview

The first and second year focuses on foundation courses including art history, drawing, art theory and design. During the second year students are encouraged to sample a variety of courses in printmaking, painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art, mixed media and art and social practice. In the third and fourth years students have an opportunity to select their own combination of interdisciplinary classes or to focus on a specific area of interest. In either case they will develop their knowledge of visual language, media skills and the conceptual and expressive aspects of their work. Critical theory and professional practice in art are investigated to aid the student in establishing a context within the contemporary arts community.
