Course Summary

This course provides a stimulating environment in which you will be guided to develop your creative aspirations, reach a critical maturity, and gain the self-confidence and skills that will enable you to work as a successful artist. The course is studio practice driven and relies on experimentation and critical reflection supported by individualised mentoring, lectures, seminars and group critiques. It emphasises the articulation of ideas, development of working methods and the realisation of independent work. Seminars are structured to investigate a broad range of themes relevant to the practicing artist and provide a rich diet of inspiration. Towards the end of the programme you will consolidate your research and practice into fully realised body of work for exhibition or other form of public situation as appropriate. You will also have developed a strategy for the continuation of your practice located and contextualised to the profession or discipline. A Masters qualification typically comprises 180 credits, a PGDip 120 credits, a PGCert 60 credits, and an MFA 300 credits.

Modules

Driven and focused on the development of your practice through the realisation of a comprehensive and coherent body of work, this unit builds upon the previous Practice 1 unit and provides an opportunity to sustain the development of practice over a concentrated period of time. Within this unit you will be expected to resolve a comprehensive understanding of their practice, its place in relation to the broader related discipline and the potential professionalization and sustainability of future practice. You will be expected to be able to communicate the summary learning journey of their programme of study, the relevant methodologies used to develop the practice and the future professional pathways being explored. There is a break within this unit to allow for a period of reflection that will contribute towards the final written component necessary for assessment.
