This course introduces fundamental aspects of materials, media and composition in two-dimensional and three-dimensional art practices. You will investigate how line, shape, colour, and surface determine form and meaning. Working with a variety of media will allow you to explore mass, volume, texture and the representation of space. Lectures, discussions and critiques will introduce you to historical and contemporary theories and images as references for art making. The mornings will be dedicated to 2D work, and the afternoons to 3D work.
