Course Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Hatcliffe

Level 3 Painting is strongly focused on contemporary painting methods and ideas. A high level of creativity and personal investment is fostered as the course allows students to further explore their practical knowledge, ability to generate ideas, and their understanding of the conventions and constraints of several forms of painting through a variety of artworks. Students will generate an individually conceived theme and produce a significant body of original work. Critical, reflective and creative thinking skills, independent approaches to problem solving and self-directed learning, essential for tertiary study, are promoted and developed.
