Colour is an important deliberation when making art. In this course you will focus on colour in various objective and subjective guises - considering it; as idea, as culture, as material, as expressive, as social, as political, as metaphor, as aesthetic, as intuitive, as emotion, as personal, as signifier, as technical. The course is studio based and is designed and delivered in ways, which focuses on your individual responses to colour and at the same time exposing you to a range of technical approaches with colour in painting practice. This includes; the principles of colour, colour and grisaille, tonality, limited palettes, and colour mixing. At all times experimentation is encouraged as a way to extend and develop a body of artworks in any form and material relevant to your individual interests.
The course will be delivered through flexible set projects, lectures, demonstrations, and individual studio and group tutorials.
Containment and Surface – Wheel Throwing and Glaze Theory
Form and Space – Ceramic Hand-building
This course will focus on developing your ceramic hand building skills, techniques and processes while exploring the form and space of an object. It will also expose you to a range of surface treatments of the ceramic form. The course is based around a series of structured projects that engage ideas around creativity and the nature of a ceramic art practice. You will create a range of art works and related support material to establish the means to analyse modes of practice and models of aesthetics and meaning in ceramics. You will develop knowledge and skills in analysing, responding and discussing your own artwork and the artwork of others. This course will initiate your Fine Art Studio Practice through the development of methods that relate to your studio specialisation in Ceramics.[Recommend to Year 1 Ceramics students]
