  • Overview

    This subject introduces creative arts students to the fundamental practices in Visual Arts and Design. Students will explore differing notions of collaboration and creativity in lectures and workshops. Using basic Visual Arts and Design methodologies developed in the subject, students undertake projects which include photo and digital media and their associated mise-en-scene applications for film and theatre. Students use their pebble pad journals or blogs to record and reflect on the collaborative process and its development in the projects. One optional project will be offered in an external location over an intensive week.
