Unit of study_

Visual Art Foundation 1 - CAVA1001

This unit of study introduces you to art practice in the 2 Dimensional (image) and 3 Dimensional (sculpture) realms of creative practice at Sydney College of the Arts. You will engage with a variety of creative learning experiences specific to each field of enquiry and will be provided with project-based content designed to develop your conceptual understanding and problem solving skills within a creative arts studio framework. Each week you will have 2 hours of academic tuition supported by a 1 hour technical workshop. You will undertake two consecutive projects of 6-weeks duration that will encourage you to: explore a wide range of media and processes; develop a participatory, collaborative and cooperative approach; and build on your understanding of the creative scope of Contemporary Art. Each 6-week block will be delivered by a different academic and technical team. You will be encouraged to experiment, experience a range of facilities and equipment, and develop generic technical skills necessary to realise your projects. You will also become aware of Workplace Health and Safety essential to SCA and all current art practices.
