CACW100: Introduction to Creative Writing (Shoalhaven Campus Only)
This subject provides an introduction to the creative writing process for students without a strong background in writing. Major forms of contemporary writing are explored, including prose fiction, poetry and scriptwriting. Students will explore topics such as:
- finding ideas for writing;
- language and the writer;
- the drafting process;
- the workshop process;
THEA390: Theatre Workshop 3
Both these workshop subjects will explore the theatrical process through the study of published scripts, musical scores or newly written or devised work. Specialised performance techniques may be taught in order to access the appropriate style of text or music. Performances will be produced to low level budgets using students' technical and stage management skills.
VISA124: Introduction to Photography
This subject is an introduction to digital photography and Photoshop. Students will learn digital camera skills, digital manipulation and printing to make photographic art works. Lectures, demonstrations and exercises will develop image-making techniques and critical skills to create self-directed art projects using photography. Topics covered include: camera skills: exposure control, lighting, composition, Photoshop and an overview of contemporary art photography. Students are expected to maintain a visual diary of their art processes and will learn to use a digital SLR, but may use any digital camera for major assignments.
VISA190: Visual Arts Workshop A
This subject develops basic skills in two technical disciplines: drawing and painting. This subject will prove valuable to students who wish either to extend their visual arts or graphic design skills, or who want to obtain a fundamental grounding in visual arts practice.
VISA290: Visual Arts Workshop B
This subject provides an introduction to traditional oil painting techniques. Class work is based around still life and drapery, contextualised through a consideration of conceptual aspects of medium and subject matter in relation to historical and contemporary still life painting.
The program covers the use of coloured grounds and tonal underpainting, the application of dead colour, and the effects of alternating opaque and transparent paint layers. In their major project, students may choose to extend their investigation of the still life genre or to apply the acquired skills to other areas of painting practice.
