||This course will be assessed by the submission of a portfolio of visual art works within the discipline studied. This will include a selection of resolved art works, preparatory studies, visual research and evidence of a contextual awareness through a completed sketchbook and/or visual journal. The work must be presented in a clear and professional manner appropriate to the discipline. The submission should include work undertaken within the class as well as directed and independent study out with the class. Typically, this will comprise:
- Class Contact hours: 27.5 (work undertaken during the class)
- Directed hours: 27.5 (work the tutor has set students to each week in their own time)
- Independent Study Hours: 45 (work students set themselves to do, relevant to the discipline studied)
The combined submission will be assessed against the three learning outcomes for this course. These are equally weighted and each will be given a percentage grade. To pass, students must achieve a minimum of 30% in each learning outcome and an overall combined mark of 40% minimum.
