STUDIO ARTS
Unit 2: Design exploration and concepts
Explores the use of photographic materials and techniques in the production of photo-based art.  The CCP current exhibitions include B&W mural prints, digital scans, video media, and mixed media investigation.  Examine the use of different materials and techniques and why they are appropriate to their selected art form.

Unit 4: Studio production and art industry contexts

Why the conscious choices on scale, mounting, framing and the manner in which the work is installed is critical for the artist and curator when work is exhibited.  Also explore the major differences between the role of CCP as compared to public galleries, commercial galleries and other art spaces.
