Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to research and experiment with a broad range of painting techniques to refine and evaluate an individual professional style.
It applies to highly skilled visual artists who integrate the use of those different techniques explored, to realise a coherent body of creative work. They work with a high level of independence seeking mentoring and guidance as required.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Equivalent Rule

Supersedes and is equivalent to CUVPAI501A - Refine painting techniques

Elements

  • 3. Consolidate painting technique to professional level
  • 4. Evaluate own painting technique
  • 1. Research painting ideas and techniques
  • 2. Select painting techniques for refinement

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:
- research an extensive range of painting techniques to inform own work practice
- refine painting technique through a process of thorough experimentation and practice to create a coherent body of painting work which:
- shows a command of chosen techniques
- demonstrates the development of an individual style
- supports own ideas for work.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:
- describe copyright, trademarks, design licences and permissions relevant to producing painting works
- identify an extensive range of information sources that support research in painting practice
- summarise, for historical and contemporary painting, the main cultural, sociological, philosophical, aesthetic, political and commercial influences
- explain, for own work practice and that of other artists, the relationship between painting technique and particular effects and design ideas
- explain, for an extensive range of painting techniques, how they work to achieve effects and their limitations and constraints in achieving effects
- describe a range of creative thinking techniques and how they can be used to encourage new ideas
- describe, for the elements and principles of design, the detailed characteristics, complex interrelationships, use in paintings and how they may be challenged
- discuss formal and informal professional development opportunities for professional arts practitioners working with painting
- explain key safety requirements for painting work.

Assessment

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:
- equipment, tools and materials used to produce paintings
- information sources.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
