Brief description

This module extends over two semesters. It provides you with the opportunity to work on either a single work or small-series of related works over the span of a single academic session. The opportunity is presented to practice in a focused manner and over prolonged period to create a major work that will be brought to the same degree of technical finish and conceptual resolution as works made for AR30130 Exhibition 1. The work(s) may be in any medium or combination of mediums. The framework of practice should relate logically to work produced in the Portfolio module you are pursuing. The time-frame for this module is crucial. You will be expected to start the module in week 1 of Semester 1 and complete in prior to examination in Semester 2. The governing principle is that you maintain activity on the piece(s) throughout this period. This has several implications:

Aims

A. Complete an extended study in self-directed art practice
B. challenge yourself to work within a prescribed time frame
C. develop a consciousness of a work'r evolution and a diagnostic approach to image making
D. deliver a productive, individual, and imaginative interpretation of subject matter
E. produce work exhibiting conceptual, technical, and methodological coherence, and stylistic sophistication

Content

The syllabus represents a suggested programme of work. It is given as a general guide for student and tutor. It need not be maintained rigidly; indeed, it may be superseded by a very different programme agreed between the two parties. What is important is that some form of schedule is developed so that a body of work that fulfils the aims and Outcomes of the module is produced within the allotted time.
Tutorial 1 (Weeks 1-2)
Stage 1: Defining a framework, context, and programme of work
Tutorial 2 (Weeks 3-10)
Stage 2: Implementing the programme, self-criticism and its practical outcome, recording development (as appropriate)
Tutorial 3 (Week 11)
Interim assessment of progess.
VACATION
Tutorial 4 (Weeks 12-16)
Stage 3: Maintenance of the programme, self-criticism and its practical outcome, recording development (as appropriate)
Tutorial 5 (Weeks 17-22)
