Unit Description

This unit directly develops and expands upon the skills and techniques of contemporary painting and art making processes begun in AR643 Creative Practice Foundations: Painting. Students will continue to expand their involvement in and integration of the creative process of painting. This process will develop understanding and practical application of the formal conventions of painting while expanding critical and analytical thinking and visual perception. A number of painting principles, for example the nature and relationship of colour and tone, the effect and relevance of light, as well as figurative and compositional structures, will continue to be applied and developed through this process. Students will continue to integrate practical engagement in developing a portfolio of works based on a chosen theme in their creative process, ideas, imagery and visual language within painting activities by strengthening their personal body of painting work with works from both within and outside of class. Underpinning all practical work and theoretical concepts discussed students will continue to critically evaluate and develop how they integrate Christian faith and spirituality into their creative process especially in light of what ethical and moral issues may be raised in connection with the issues of representation.
