Studios and studio practice
All students are given a studio, of which there are a variety of different spaces to choose from. Studios are mixed across year levels to encourage peer group learning. All teaching is by staff, all of which are practicing artists, writers and curators. This takes place in the studios and seminar rooms, such as individual tutorials, small group tutorials and larger convenor (seminar) presentations.
The Department has nine specialist laboratories, and a Yarn Store, providing support for a wide variety of processes that complement and extend traditional disciplines such as, casting, wood and metal fabrication, textiles, print, photography, digital media and video editing.
The facilities staff have arts backgrounds and specialist knowledge in their fields. All processes, applications and equipment are offered to Department of Art students and staff with full technical support.
Students are liable for material costs incurred in the Laboratories and in the Yarn Store.
