VART1005 Visual Arts Practice I (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
VART1005 Visual Arts Practice I and VART1006 Visual Arts Practice II are required introductory practice courses to be offered in consecutive semesters of Year 1 of the BA (Hons) in Visual Arts-programme of AVA. They will be offered in parallel with the required theory courses VART1305 Art and its Histories I and VART1306 Art and its Histories II. Together these courses are intended to introduce fundamental practical and theoretical knowledge, skills and work attitude to first-year students to train up their ‘minds’, ‘eyes’ and ‘hands’ for further study in various academic/artistic subject areas within the BA-programme, and to familiarize them with the settings of teaching and learning at the Academy of Visual Arts.
VART1005 Visual Arts Practice I focuses on initially introducing students to a selected set of practical 2D and 3D skills that enable them to start off their personal creative production, and develop a sense for a sustainable personal studio practice. As this may be the first instance for students to experience professional practice in the visual arts the course starts off by reiterating and consolidating elementary principles of creative practice. It then introduces basic skills like analogue and digital sketching, and model making, as well as the use of essential tools and equipment, which students are expected to applying through exercises, as well as one 2D and one 3D project each.
