This course allows you to concentrate on your major creative direction as an artist. You will be required to research your chosen area of interest and initiate a body of studio work informed by the relationship between your own practice-based research, contemporary art practice and inter-disciplinary methodologies. The course assists you to extend and develop the focus of your inquiry towards a coherent body of work, building upon the theories and concepts that have emerged in your course of study. You will be encouraged to evaluate and articulate the relationship between your proposed intentions and the outcomes achieved in your studio practice.
