This degree is designed to prepare Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to become professional artists. The study will focus on traditional Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art media, styles and forms, together with strategies for their viable adaptation within a highly urbanised society. It is planned in accordance with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander principles and philosophies. Teaching respects Aboriginal laws concerning the ways in which techniques and images may be used. Students will conduct research based on their own family histories and traditions. Students are also required to undertake field trips to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and study contemporary culture and politics. This Honours program will provide a fourth year of study for students who have completed the Bachelor of Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art at the Queensland College of Art. It will provide advanced level study in Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art and begin formal training in research through the completion of an independent research project with associated theoretical studies.
