Content
In this core capstone studio unit, students continue to strengthen their artistic, conceptual, technical and research skills as they work towards the development of a fully resolved and substantial portfolio of work. With support and guidance from their lecturers, students are expected to independently initiate and develop a self-directed project and/or body of work in their chosen field of practice. Additionally, students are expected to consolidate the methodological approaches and practices developed over their previous units of study as well as undertake self-reflexive, critical analysis of their own work. A portion of the weekly contact time for this unit will be devoted to the preparation and development of the exegesis. Work produced in this unit will be considered for inclusion in the Graduate Exhibition.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) discuss advanced knowledge of relevant techniques, concepts and contemporary contexts effectively in written and oral forms; (2) apply creative and critical processes to the development of ideas and creative outcomes through advanced analytical reflection on your independent art practice; (3) synthesise advanced technical, conceptual and contextual knowledge to generate a resolved body of independently created art; (4) implement practices for documenting and exhibiting creative work; and (5) synthesise critical and analytical thinking effectively in written, oral and creative modes.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: creative work. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
