FS40IC: THE NARRATIVE WITHIN THE FRAME B (2015-2016)

Last modified: 25 Mar 2016 11:32


Course Overview

This course will investigate different forms of image making, including paintings, photographs and films by different artists from a range of historical periods. We will be considering narrative form and content as shaped by subject selection, composition and framing, use of colour or black and white, and control of light. These themes will be considered from aesthetic, historical and theoretical perspectives. Through a series of seminars, workshops and screenings, students will learn approaches to still and moving image making that will culminate in a practice-based creative project including a group video installation.
