What is the course about?

A course for students who are ready to develop their own ideas in painting with reference to the work of contemporary artists and experimental processes. Students should have completed Painting 1 and Painting 2 or higher level courses.
The emphasis will be on the process – ‘How do I take an idea/ sketch and develop it into a finished work?’ Informed by contemporary art practice students will be encouraged to expand their approach to making a painting, using research, experimentation, layering of imagery, exploration of materials etc. This course offers students higher level guidance with the freedom to explore their own ideas.
