Statement

The Gold and Silversmithing Workshop at the School of Art in the Australian National University is one of Australia’s leading institutions for the practice-led study of contemporary metal work. The extensively equipped workshop provides a unique environment where small class sizes allow for intensive individual tuition and progressive facilities ensure that students are offered the highest quality learning experience. Students receive comprehensive instruction in the use of traditional metalworking techniques in a contemporary context and produce works that cross boundaries between functional, decorative, wearable and sculptural. A diverse range of materials and related processes are introduced, including both precious and non-precious metals, as well as a wide selection of non-metals. Experimentation with alternative materials is encouraged and often leads to independent study and graduate research. Courses also engage a significant component of concept development and design methodology and throughout the course reference is made to the historical and contemporary context of gold and silversmithing practice. Students are accepted from within Australia and Internationally.

Courses

Undergraduate programs
The School has good connections to the wider community, and the public are encouraged to visit the gallery spaces as well as attend the regular public lecture program, Art Forum, and attend the School of Art Annual Lecture, delivered each year by a distinguished scholar from the arts community.
 
We enjoy strong international connections with other art schools and, through an International Exchange Network, students from the School are able to study at a wide range of prestigious institutions around the world. The Exchange also encourages students from countries outside Australia to come and work in the School's excellent facilities.
 
A long-established artist-in-residence program brings some of the world's most experienced artists to live and work within the School, exposing students to the work and processes of artists of the highest calibre.
 
Canberra has a thriving art scene and and is home to many of the nation's premier institutions and the School draws on these for its teaching programs. Finally, the world-class research culture that ANU is renowned for provides a stimulating backdrop to study in the School.
 
Research Degrees
Higher degree research programs involve a 2 to 4 year fulltime extended research project resulting in either a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Art History, Art Theory or Visual Arts. Part-time study is available.

Coursework is a compulsory component of the programs that equates to approximately one semester of the programs. Two coursework courses cover visual arts research methods and writing about practice, while a further two deal with important aspects of research training, such as proposal and report writing, literature and artefact reviews, fieldwork and ethics.

Each degree is undertaken primarily as either a practice-led research project or as a written research project.

Practice-led Research Project in the Visual Arts
Students construct a project under the supervision of a panel whose expertise encompasses studio practice, art theory and art history.

The practice-led research project is accompanied by a 14,000 word Exegesis for the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and a 28,000 word Exegesis for the PhD.

Research Project in Art History or Art Theory
Students develop a project under the supervision of a panel primarily located within the Centre for Art History and Art Theory. The research interests of the Centre’s staff can be found at https://researchers.anu.edu.au/

In the MPhil program students complete a thesis up to 60,000 words and in the PhD program a thesis up to 100,000 words.
