Domain: The Arts
Length of Course: Trimester

Unit Information

Contemporary art practice is no longer bound to realistic representation and the artist is free to express and explore ideas through whatever methods best communicate them. The re-interpreting of conventional images and concepts has allowed artists to question what has come before, re-interpreting the past and finding their own language to communicate their vision within an art context. The course will explore a wide range of art materials and techniques to find visual solutions to a problem or theme.

You will be introduced to art practices and challenged to investigate current ideas and beliefs, explore new materials and methods and respond to your world in a meaningful and creative way. The theoretical aspects of this course focus on gaining an appreciation for art in contemporary society as well as from past cultures.
