The overarching objective of EXPANDED PRACTICE is to nurture a multifaceted, autonomous artistic practice.

Both research-oriented and studio-based, it encourages the development of skills, curiosity and emphasises connectivity rather than creating in isolation.  This approach is highly individualised, focused on developing an individual’s work as a coherent whole.  Students are empowered to be self-reflective, disciplined, and self-critical, thereby eliminating the reliance on external assessment criteria as they take on the role of their own assessors.

Along with guidance and support from professional artists and their community, students engage in critiques and tasks designed to motivate and challenge them, which will encourage a sense of forward momentum and growth in their artistic path.  Although you can participate in Expanded Practice on a term-by-term basis, the program has been designed to build over a year-long arc.

In order to enhance and support students’ artistic goals, Expanded Practice includes full TAR Membership which gives students access to TAR resources, such as the library and online video content. With mentoring throughout the year, students will achieve the objective of an exhibition as the final outcome.
