Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

The BA initio four years Honours Degree in Visual Art at WIT has been informed by the latest developments in art theory and practice. These include, the use of inter and multi disciplinary approaches, availing of the creative opportunities inherent in new media and the development of a comprehensive understanding of contemporary critical theory. At the same time, the course recognises the continuing significance of more traditional art forms, such as drawing and painting, and these are incorporated into the programme.

The course is structured on the basis of a modularised four-year degree, starting with the inculcation of core skills. These are then extended through a number of thematic projects in which practical ability is augmented and strengthened by the development of critical theory. Finally, each student brings his/her cumulative learning to bear on the accomplishment of a personal artistic project.
