VART4056 Studio Honours Project (9 units)
- Year 4 standing
- Medium of Instruction:
The Studio Honours Project is a self-assigned practice-based research project pursued through independent studies by individual students aiming at a professional career in the creative/cultural sectors. It is intended as a capstone experience for students to demonstrate their achievement of the graduate attributes as defined by the BA (Hons) in Visual Arts programme and the university.
The Studio Honours Project provides a keystone experience giving students the opportunity to prove their capability of solving independently and self-reliantly a self-generated assignment in the work field of the Visual Arts. They will apply the concepts and skills gained in the programme to the investigation. In successfully doing so the student will meet academic and creative standards that allow the Academy to confer the BA (Hons) in Visual Arts Degree on them.
To provide Studio Honours Project students with a minimum of guidance as well as an academic setting, they are assigned Honours Project supervisors that fits the Studio Honours Project’s thematic direction, medium of choice or other considerations. It is expected that they work in the studio on campus as much as feasible, utilising the available facilities and equipment, while at the same time contributing their expertise and efforts to the environment and culture of that studio area.
The Studio Honours Project by requirement should be part of the concentration pursued and needs to be taken within one of the studio areas explored before. Under normal circumstances, the outcomes of the Studio Honours Project – in particular the creative work – are required to be exhibited to the public within the annual Graduation Show.
The Studio Honours Project is worth 9 units; every BA (Hons) in Visual Arts student in professional mode is required to complete it usually in their final year of studies. Further details concerning the Studio Honours Project are elaborated in the Honours Project Regulations.
