Foundation Studio Concepts B (MSTD1123)


This program is an idea-based, project-style, non-studio-specific program consisting of one 6-week block. Students are encouraged to identify and develop an interdisciplinary practice. The timetable structure enables students to explore a range of approaches between disciplines, facilities and staff, thus providing a more inclusive educational experience. Classes are held in cross-studio groups in a central space, and each student works around broad themes. This program challenges students to consider the development of ideas and how processes and materials are chosen and utilised in relation to those ideas. By the end of the year students will have developed some generic technical skills and will be able to clearly identify the facilities and equipment, and their purposes, as well as the health and safety requirements that are essential to SCA and current art practice.
