This course assumes that the student has some knowledge of the Visual Arts. Students are expected to operate as ‘practising artists, crafts-persons or designers’ negotiating their direction of study and selecting appropriate discipline/s with the teacher. Students work individually on specific skills, processes and techniques facilitated by the teacher. This would be excellent as a co-enrolment option with Certificates in Visual Arts, or SACE Stage 2 New Media.
