You will only take one Workshop class in semester 1, but you need to list three (3) preferences. These Workshops will be for both second and third year students and will be offered under the following course codes:
Year 2: Workshop 3 (VART 3690)
Year 3: Workshop 5 (VART 3692)
These Workshop classes are 12 credit point courses and will require 3 contact hours per week plus associated learner directed hours.

For more information about a course, and/or to seek academic advice from your specialisation coordinator prior to deciding, please contact Hong Kong Art School.
IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE: You must not repeat any class in your preference lists. Every effort will be made to place you in your first preference classes. Selected classes would be offering in each year, please refer to class information provided by Hong Kong Art School for details. Although we would like to offer all of the options below, classes are subject to viability and may not run if numbers are too low.
Alternative Ceramic Methods
Composite Materials and Forms
In this course you will explore the physical properties of a broad range of materials and processes and languages in clay and ceramics, and will build on the conceptual and technical skills you have acquired in first and/or second year. You will focus on the combination of composite materials and additives to clay, and their inherent qualities using high and low technology production methods in ceramics. You will experiment with forms and processes to explore the language of materials in ways that expand, transform and deepen your personal approach to art making. You will further develop the aesthetic and conceptual considerations that are necessary for contemporary object making. You will also be encouraged to link theoretical and perceptual responses to objects that you have explored in other courses into your studio projects.
In consultation with academic staff, you will assume increasing responsibility for determining your thinking and making processes by considering appropriate directions for your art practice.
