Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Research painting ideas and techniques

1.1 Support professional practice by expanding knowledge of historical and contemporary painting

1.2 Research ways that other artists have used different painting techniques

1.3 Investigate how particular painting techniques work to achieve different technical effects

1.4 Evaluate the relationships between painting techniques and ideas

1.5 Adapt and use relevant ideas and approaches and comply with intellectual property requirements

2. Select painting techniques for refinement

2.1 Evaluate creative and professional opportunities offered by different painting techniques for own approach to work

2.2 Identify and assess limitations and constraints of particular techniques

2.3 Select a broad range of painting techniques for refinement

3. Consolidate painting technique to professional level

3.1 Develop increasing confidence and skill through practice and experimentation

3.2 Proactively identify and resolve technical problems in painting based on developing expertise

3.3 Challenge and test ideas and use creative thinking techniques to encourage new and unpredictable ideas to emerge

3.4 Evolve ideas and other professional skills through ongoing experimentation with technique

3.5 Develop own ways of working with techniques to create individual style

3.6 Create a coherent body of painting work that shows command of selected painting techniques

3.7 Handle equipment, tools and materials safely; minimise and safely dispose of waste throughout all processes

4.  Evaluate own painting technique

4.1 Evaluate development of own technique with others and seek feedback

4.2 Seek and participate in professional discussions that challenge and explore different concepts and approaches

4.3 Evaluate particular ways that experimentation with different techniques has informed own artwork

4.4 Identify ways to further develop technique as part of professional practice and build ideas into future work

Foundation Skills

This section describes language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills incorporated in the performance criteria that are required for competent performance.

Skill 

Performance  Criteria 

Description 

Reading

Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with CUA Creative Arts and Culture Training Package version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • research an extensive range of painting techniques to inform own work practice
  • refine painting technique through a process of thorough experimentation and practice to create a coherent body of painting work which:
  • shows a command of chosen techniques
  • demonstrates the development of an individual style
  • supports own ideas for work.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • describe copyright, trademarks, design licences and permissions relevant to producing painting works
  • identify an extensive range of information sources that support research in painting practice
  • summarise, for historical and contemporary painting, the main cultural, sociological, philosophical, aesthetic, political and commercial influences
  • explain, for own work practice and that of other artists, the relationship between painting technique and particular effects and design ideas
  • explain, for an extensive range of painting techniques, how they work to achieve effects and their limitations and constraints in achieving effects
  • describe a range of creative thinking techniques and how they can be used to encourage new ideas
  • describe, for the elements and principles of design, the detailed characteristics, complex interrelationships, use in paintings and how they may be challenged
  • discuss formal and informal professional development opportunities for professional arts practitioners working with painting
  • explain key safety requirements for painting work.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:

  • equipment, tools and materials used to produce paintings
  • information sources.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
