This module will continue the process of skills development begun in the first year.  The focus remains on the systematic development of complex skills and techniques and self-critical examination of progress against self-determined aims.   On the basis of their level four experience students will be more confident and independent in locating and using appropriate resources to develop skills. Equally, this independence will be more necessary as student begin to move towards a sense of themselves as individual artist/designers with distinct  personal areas of interest and competence requiring particular skill sets.  Thus the greater emphasis on student autonomy and student convened self-help, skill sharing, and identifying resources to support skill development.  To support confidence in self-criticality students will engage in evaluation of self, peers’, and tutors’ creative work.
