Subject Description
CAVA202 gives students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of contemporary visual arts practices. Through theoretical lectures, studio workshops and a major project students develop an understanding of significant contemporary art themes and creative strategies. To further the exploration of contemporary arts practice introduced in CAVA201, students continue to develop their skills in the areas of painting, sculpture, textiles and photography. Whilst this subject enables students to develop specialist studio skills, it also allows for explorations beyond the traditional visual arts disciplinary boundaries by encouraging interdisciplinary approaches. The emphasis of this subject is on problem solving and building confidence through critical thinking and practice.
