This unit of study introduces you to ways of engaging with contemporary art. You encounter and discuss the exciting work that artists and theorists produce, and the breadth and scope of contemporary art on an international scale. While the term 'contemporary' can be interpreted in a variety of ways, this unit encompasses art and ideas most pertinent to the last thirty years. This unit addresses ideas and practices that we consider fundamental knowledge for visual arts practitioners: the concept of the 'everyday', the relevance of disciplines such as philosophy to art criticism, the importance of identity in the practices of artists, the central place of the body and theories of perception to the work that artists produce, and the many theoretical ideas that emanate from a close study of art objects.
CADR1003 Contemporary Drawing 1

Credit points: 6 Session: Semester 1,Semester 2 Classes: 1x2-hour workshop/week; 1x1-hour on-line workshop/week Assessment: research file (30%) and final work (70%) Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day

You are challenged to extend and expand your understanding of drawing as: an art practice in its own right; a form of notation, documentation and archive; a problem solving tool; a place to speculate and synthesise; a means to scrutinize and investigate; a method to express aspects of the imagined; and a way to evolve ideas and develop thoughts.
Contemporary Drawing 1 focuses on two approaches of drawing, namely life drawing and experimental drawing, to encourage you to develop your own visual language as a catalyst for creative thought and a means to develop greater visual literacy. In this unit you engage with life models to develop observational and expressive skills, encounter a wide range of experimental practices, and explore the connections between the techniques of observational representation and an expanded understanding of manual mark making. You will develop a portfolio that you can draw on for future creative endeavours.
CAST1001 Studio 1

Credit points: 12 Session: Semester 2 Classes: 2x3-hour studio class/week Prerequisites: CASF1001 Assessment: research assignment (20%) and project 1 (30%) and final project (50%) Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day

You will become familiar with a broad range of concepts and work methods within your chosen disciplines so as to develop your own visual language, ideas and methods of expression.
CATE1002 The Avant-Garde

Credit points: 6 Session: Semester 2 Classes: 1-hour lecture and 1-hour tutorial/week Assessment: short writing task (30%) and major essay (70%) Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
In this unit of study, you are introduced to the important role of modernism as an antecedent of contemporary practice. You analyse the social, political and economic underpinnings of modernity that gave rise to modern art. Freed from the controls of patronage, modern art grew more autonomous, to the point of providing a point of social critique through what became known as the avant-garde. The modern period is characterized by contradictory forces, from utopianism and technophilia on one hand, to a new interest in unreason, disorder and destabilization on the other. These forces found expression in the wide variety of artistic approaches that you will study in this unit, including: realism, abstraction, utopian visions, expressionism, surrealism, and art and the everyday. You are encouraged to make links between historical developments within their specific contexts, and their contemporary legacies.
CADR1004 Contemporary Drawing 2

Credit points: 6 Session: Semester 1,Semester 2 Classes: 1x2-hour workshop/week; 1x1-hour on-line workshop/week Assessment: research file (30%) and final work (70%) Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
Contemporary Drawing 2 introduces you to the concept that drawing functions as a universal process relevant to all art practices and applications of creative thinking. You are challenged to extend and expand their understanding of drawing: an art practice in its own right; a form of notation, documentation and archive; a problem solving tool; a place to speculate and synthesise; a means to scrutinize and investigate; a method to express aspects of the imagined; and a way to evolve ideas and develop thoughts.
Contemporary Drawing 2 focuses on two approaches of drawing, namely digital drawing and animation/time-based drawing, to encourage you to develop your own visual language as a catalyst for creative thought and as a means to develop greater visual literacy. In this unit, you apply Photoshop and other digital effects to your artistic projects, encounter drawing as a kinetic medium that is adaptable to many creative applications, and explore the connections between the conventions of digital image creation and strategies to bring this to life. You will develop a portfolio that you can draw on for future creative endeavours.
