unit 3
   Studio production and professional art practices
   There are three outcomes for this unit. The first focuses on the development of an Exploration Proposal that
   defines the concepts, ideas and working methods that students’ want to explore. The second Outcome is the
   exploration of those concepts and ideas and working methods as defined in the Exploration Proposal. The
   third Outcome will focus on the investigation and analysis of two artists and consider ethical and legal issues.

area of study 1
   Exploration Proposal
   The Exploration Proposal is a guide for the development of a body of work and is a reference point for
   reflection and analysis on that works development.
   The Exploration Proposal is to be prepared before commencement of the design process and it may be
   expanded on during the early stages of the design process.

   The Exploration Proposal identifies:
          an explanation of the focus and subject matter to be explored
          the aesthetic qualities to be explored in relation to your own ideas
          art form/s (textiles, ceramics, photography, multimedia etc)
          sources of inspiration to be investigated, analysed and interpreted in relation to your individual ideas
          conceptual possibilities (including an explanation of the ideas to be explored)
          the materials and techniques t be explored and how these support the communication of ideas
          an explanation of specific materials and techniques that will/may be used
          the inclusion of a plan (time plan)
          use of appropriate art language and terminology

area of study 2
   Design Process
   The design process is the exploration of the ideas and concepts identified in the Exploration Proposal and
   leads to the production of a range of creative potential directions that will be produced in Unit 4.

   The Design Process investigates:

           focus
           subject matter
           sources of inspiration
           art form/s
           exploration and development of ideas
           materials and techniques
           aesthetic qualities

   The Design Process documents and annotates:

           the development of Potential Directions
           the evolution of Potential directions
           the parameter of future work
           student reflections on experimentation and development of work
           student analysis of the experimentation and development of work
           student evaluation of experimentation and development of work
           clarification of ideas and working processes

  Throughout the Design Process:

          ideas are refined
          techniques are refined
          use of materials and processes are refined
          aesthetic qualities are refined

  The Visual Diary provides written and visual confirmation of the development of Potential Directions as
  identified in the Exploration Proposal.

  At the conclusion of the Design Process a range of appropriate Potential Directions should have been
  developed that encompass the most effective communication of concepts, ideas and aesthetics, as
  documented in the Exploration Proposal.

  Potential Directions should provide scope for the refinement of techniques, the application of materials
  appropriate to the communication of ideas.

 area of study 3
  Professional art practices and styles
  This area of study focuses on at least two artists and:
          the development of styles in artworks
          investigates the way artists interpret subject matter, influences, cultural context and communicate
           ideas and meanings in artworks
          investigates the use of materials, techniques, processes and working methods
          investigates the ways in which artists develop aesthetic qualities and styles
          develops understanding of the selected art form/s in more than one historical and/or cultural
          involves research and using the appropriate art language and terminology applied to professional art
           practice and art making.
  This area of study focuses on:
          Professional art practice in relation to particular art form/s
          Identifying and reviewing the issues, legal obligations and ethical considerations that may arise from
           the use of other artists’ work in the making of new art work becoming familiar with appropriation and
           originality, copyright law, licensing agreements and the moral rights of artists.

homework task 1
  Students are asked to identify at least two artists whose work they can relate to and are interested in. The
  selected artists may be used as inspiration for the students Exploration Proposal and Design Process.

  Students are to develop a brief biography on their two artists, identifying:
                  Relevant cultural and/or historic influences on their work
                  Stylistic qualities evident in their work
                  Meaning, intention and purpose of their work.

  Students should start collecting reproductions of artworks/photographs/images, citing and identifying relevant
  websites and other sources.

  Date due the week beginning 21st February
