Subject Description
This subject is a series of intensive and dynamic studios in the Visual Arts taught by professional practicing artists. The studios offered will vary depending on the lecturersí fields of expertise and availability. Examples of the workshops taught include Drawing, Printmaking and Painting. The aim of the subject is to introduce students to various studios that develop the technical skills and creative potential of each student. The studios being offered each session will be advertised on the subject database, open to students from across the university and require no requisite knowledge.
