Studio Gateway 1 introduces students to studio practice in contemporary Art, Media and Design. The course, along with COFA1002 Studio Gateway 2, underpins future development as studio practitioners by allowing students to conceptualise and situate their practice through a series of seminars, workshops and projects designed to challenge ideas around practice and creativity.

Major themes addressed include: perception and its transformation, the roles of time, change and materiality, and how scoring and encoding strategies are embedded in contemporary studio practice.
