Painting Elective Introductory (MSTD7411)


The Introductory Elective provides a studio-based approach to the production of creative work. Throughout the semester students will follow a project-based curriculum, addressing concepts, methodologies and technologies integral to contemporary painting. Thematic approaches will be supported by technical introductions to encourage exploration with painting methodologies. The elective provides for the development and enhancement of critical skills through group and individual tutorials and critiques and the acquisition of technical skills appropriate to the assigned projects.
