NM2502 - Visual Arts and Concepts

Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 1
Administered by: School of Creative Arts (pre 2015)

This subject provides opportunities for students to extend their use of digital and/or traditional processes in the development of original artwork. Processes including painting, collage, illustration, drawing, digital image capture and digital manipulation may be used to create work. The work may take a variety of forms including painted, drawn or printed images. It could also include multimedia presentations. Emphasis is on the creative and conceptual input contemporary visual artists and illustrators use in their work and how artists can adopt various styles and genres for visual work. The unit culminates in an exhibition/installation of work. Students are introduced to the process of contextualising their work within the field of contemporary visual arts and to articulate the conceptual basis for their work.
