The Art major will develop individual art making and understanding of fine art history and theory. Working closely with professional artists, undertaking this major will allow you to conceive, produce and evaluate artworks incorporating methodologies of painting, drawing, installation, digital art and photography. Art theoretical content, discourse and research of significant artists will encourage rigorous critical analytical and interpretative thinking about art and develop the capacity to apply creative thinking and innovation broadly. During the major you will engage with the wider visual arts community and workplace exhibiting works, visiting exhibitions and writing reviews. The final two units of this major are designed to engage students in content connected to the principles and practices of professionalism, entrepreneurship, innovation and design characteristics related to the specialist area.
