Comments about Studio Art Program - Part Time - Melbourne - Victoria
This course welcomes anyone, no matter what your skill level. Passion and an ability to work independently are important, as is the desire to develop your own ideas, experience and relationship with contemporary art. Your lecturer will build a program to suit you. Class sizes are usually 10-15 students.
All Studio Art students are strongly encouraged to enrol for the whole year, as the classes are planned carefully to build artistic expertise and confidence over a one year period. Students will be involved in occasional feedback sessions about each other’s work throughout the year. These casual yet informed conversations about the development of artwork, guided by the lecturers, have proven to be very robust and valuable.
Objectives and Structure
Studio Art students need to select one class (from the three listed below) to major in for the duration of the year. In this class they will work closely with their lecturer and colleagues for a year long period, developing their own artistic language and voice.
In our Contemporary Painting class students, with the supportive and critical encouragement of their lecturer, will develop painting projects that incorporate new ideas and techniques. The class will explore a wide range of practical methods including the use of oil, acrylic, ink and watercolour paint as well as the preparation of a variety of painting surfaces including canvas, wood and paper. The lecturer will discuss the myriad of ways artists, of both national and international significance, are working with painting today.
