This version first released with CUV11 Visual Arts, Craft and Design Training Package version 1.0

Description

This qualification reflects the role of independent professional visual arts practitioners who have a command of wide-ranging, highly specialised technical, creative and conceptual skills and knowledge. These skills allow practitioners to extend and refine their practice to a point where they are able to originate, realise and exhibit a substantial body of resolved work that expresses their individual creative vision. The ability to engage in critical discourse and debate about one’s own work and the work of others is underpinned by a mature engagement with a range of theoretical concepts and historical perspectives.

Visual artists work in a wide range of contexts across the arts and other industries. They are often sole practitioners but may also hold positions in government or commercial organisations, bringing the visual arts perspective to areas such as business, community services and science. At this level, they may also teach art in a range of different community contexts.

Independent artists work within and across many media, and their practice may incorporate ceramics, digital art, glasswork, drawing and illustration, jewellery making, painting, photomedia, printmaking, public art, sculpture, textiles or wood design. They may also be involved in installation and public art work. More broadly, visual artists often teach in a range of community settings.
