- Express your ideas and feelings through the controlled use of a broad range of photographic materials and techniques
- Investigate and relate to all the evolutionary processes that are inherent in the development of good artwork
- Articulate issues relating to the work of other artists from a variety of cultures, past and present

At the heart of your program will be your workbook which will document your ideas, trials and progress.
