Hello and welcome to the official blog for the Advanced Diploma of Creative Product Development course 2017. As an enrolled artist / student in this course you are expected to use this blog to document and record your creative process and art production throughout the year. You have been assigned an ‘artist page’ on this blog (you’ll find it up there under Artists). Use this page to write and upload information that demonstrates and displays the work that you undertake and complete each week throughout the year. This blog is used by your mentors to monitor and assess your progress in the course, especially for the unit cluster named Studio Practice. Your journey begins today. On behalf of the Visual Arts department at Melbourne Polytechnic, we would like to wish you smooth sailing ahead as you navigate through the calm (and sometimes stormy) waters of creativity to discover new and exciting wonders.
