  • Acknowledgement of Country We respectfully acknowledge the Indigenous Elders, custodians, their descendants and kin of this land past and present.

    Syllabus Engage and challenge practices of creativity, innovation and aesthetic experience in contemporary life. Students investigate contemporary forms of cultural practice in order to articulate and represent new critical ways of thinking.

    Introduction Art and Creativity 100 will present an understanding of the relationship between contemporary art and broader social, political and community contexts. This unit provides a hands-on experience and overview of the role that artists have in the community and the impact that they have on contemporary existence.

     

    Art and Creativity aims to enable individuals to extend creative and imaginative intellectual abilities and communication skills. Creative activities including animation, collage, photography, journal gatherings, gallery visits and critical discussion will develop expertise reflecting cultural and aesthetic interests. There is an emphasis on making, presenting, critique, re-making and analysis in the understanding of visual language and individual expression. Students will be encouraged to adopt risk-taking strategies as a way of developing work and ideas. Some classes may require that you complete collaborative projects with your peers.

     

    It is important that students are well prepared for all classes by completing set research and home projects when required. It is essential to allocate additional time beyond the prescribed contact time to complete the program. In the case of this 3-hour unit, the minimum additional weekly time allocation is 3 hours.

    Unit Learning Outcomes All graduates of Curtin University achieve a set of nine graduate attributes during their course of study. These tell an employer that, through your studies, you have acquired discipline knowledge and a range of other skills and attributes which employers say would be useful in a professional setting. Each unit in your course addresses the graduate attributes through a clearly identified set of learning outcomes. They form a vital part in the process referred to as assurance of learning. The learning outcomes tell you what you are expected to know, understand or be able to do in order to be successful in this unit. Each assessment for this unit is carefully designed to test your achievement of one or more of the unit learning outcomes. On successfully completing all of the assessments you will have achieved all of these learning outcomes.

    Your course has been designed so that on graduating we can say you will have achieved all of Curtin's Graduate Attributes through the assurance of learning process in each unit.

    Curtin's Graduate Attributes

    On successful completion of this unit students can: Graduate Attributes addressed 1 Develop imaginative ideas and responses from varied sources through self and staff initiated research

    2 Work independently and in groups to analyse and interrogate relationships between contemporary art and

    popular cultural practices and between the artist and the community 3 Document, analyse and represent new ideas in a variety of forms

    Apply discipline knowledge Thinking skills (use analytical skills to solve problems)

    Information skills (confidence to investigate new ideas)

    Communication skills Technology skills Learning how to learn (apply principles learnt to new situations) (confidence to tackle unfamiliar problems)

    International perspective (value the perspectives of others)

  • Learning Activities Lectures

    Lectures are intended to introduce the ideas and set a context for the seminar workshop related activity. The will vary from traditional lectures to short artists talks and expert speakers. The learning activities for this unit allow a variety of approaches to be used by students to achieve the unit learning outcomes. This allows for creativity and individuality as well as the ability for students to use and expand on their own skills and expertise. Shortly after each lecture a recording will be provided as an i-lecture available in the Echocentre in Blackboard.

    The lectures will look at Art and Creativity within popular culture, the role of the artist as social agent, the practical experiences of cultivating an idea (from the original inspiration through to a resolved work), the gallery as concept and the role of the curator. A broad range of creative practices will be presented, each using different methods of effectively engaging ideas, challenging boundaries and questioning contemporary ideas.

     

    Class activities

    Workshop / Seminar classes following the introductory lectures will examine visual links and meanings inherent in objects and images drawing together often disparate concepts and fields of endeavour. This unit will highlight issues of interpretation; offer new insights and ways of understanding the visual world in the broader social context.

    In the class activities students will look at making connections between their personal and social interests and inspirations. These will be interpreted through a visual and conceptual framework with consideration to aesthetics, theoretical concepts and popular culture.

    Students will explore the use and effectiveness of such concepts as humour, shock, empathy and shared experience. Methods of remixing, combining and culture jamming will be discussed as part of the methodology of contemporary art.

    Practical outcomes from this unit will explore contemporary concepts in a way that encourages risk taking and experimentation. For example students will produce a creative work that focuses on structuring a narrative sequence in the form of stop animation.

     

    Visual Journal

    It is essential that all visual and written research including the recording of lectures goes into your visual journal. It is highly important that you provide evidence of your research and development for assessment. The study area in Blackboard demonstrates a number of ways to visually research and create content for the visual journal. All documentation of your work is essential. Please note it is your visual journal that will be assessed. Producing varied, consistent visual research and creative content in the visual journal will provide the greatest opportunity to learn and successfully pass this unit.

     

    Studio work outside of contact time It is essential that the majority of time spent on developing the work for assessments 1, 2 and 3 exists outside of contact hours. Working independently for a minimum of 3 hours a week additional to contact hours is fundamental in producing creative work that has the potential to pass asses
