Foundation Studio B (MSTD1112)


Foundation Studio B continues to develop skills gained in Foundation Studio A; by the end of the year students will have developed some understanding of studio-based art practice by working in their chosen studio each week. Studio classes will mostly be structured as self-directed learning exercises where students will engage with their peers and develop useful links with other key members of SCA and the wider visual arts community. Students will be given a list of mandatory health and safety equipment that will be required for access to specific studio areas and workshops. Students will also be required to purchase some materials to complete projects. Appropriate footwear and clothing will be required at all times.
