Professional Practice Electives

Students can participate up to three times under the elective courses 3593QCA Professional Practice 13594QCA Professional Practice 2, and 3595QCA Professional Practice 3. Each course requires the completion of 100 hours of studio practice and a reflective journal.

Liveworm groups operates in an intensive mode of 17 hours per week over six consecutive weeks. The Professional Practice courses are not traditionally timetabled — students set their own individual timetables while in the studio (this is organised on your first day). The studio also operates year-round, meaning that some groups run during normal Trimester breaks. You can elect to participate on campus, or online.

Liveworm is offered to all Queensland College of Art, Griffith University students who have completed 80CP of study. It is highly recommended that you have experience using Adobe Creative Cloud software before undertaking Liveworm.
