Studio Foundation - CASF1001

Year - 2018

This unit of study introduces you to the studio environments and the practice of making art at Sydney College of the Arts. You engage in a variety of creative learning experiences, with an emphasis on project-based content designed to develop conceptual understanding and problem solving skills within a creative arts studio framework. On a weekly basis you have 4 hours of academic tuition supported by a 2-hour technical workshop. You undertake two 6-week long projects that encourage you to: work with a wide range of media and processes; develop a participatory, collaborative and cooperative outlook; and expand your understanding of the creative scope of contemporary art. You are encouraged to experiment, experience a range of facilities and equipment, and develop generic technical skills necessary to achieve your projects. You will also become familiar with Workplace Health and Safety essential to SCA and all current art practices.
