Under Graduate Degree Year module NQF level: 6 Credits: 24
Module presented in English
Pre-requisite: GAR1501 or GAR1116 or GAR1014 & GAR1025 (Only applicable to 02224 ) TDM1501 or TDM101L (Only applicable to 02305)
Purpose: To advance upon the methodologies and techniques introduced at NQF Level 5 of visual arts studies and to enable students to investigate various themes within contemporary culture with a range of graphic media. By focussing on formal and conceptual aspects an independent research methodology will be developed. Although students are introduced to the module through the discipline of drawing, expanding the visual research base to include alternative forms of graphic expression is encouraged. Students will explore ways of engaging with metaphor in art and are advised to develop a critical attitude to utilising media and creative conventions. Multimedia students will learn to produce a short animation (two or three dimensional) and expand upon the new media production concepts and techniques explored in VAR211D.
