An Introduction to Fine Art

Fine art is a creative exploration of communication and making, by interpreting information and the world around us. You follow the process from interpreting ideas into fine art practice through visualising concepts into art works and communicating an interpretation of the medium, material and context. You are encouraged to explore a range of ideas, processes and methods while completing a negotiated project. No previous knowledge is assumed.
