Synopsis

This unit provides students with an opportunity to relate the broadest possible definition of drawing to current art practices, methods and materials. Through a series of set projects, students will be encouraged, through the use of materials and formats, to explore ideas and develop concepts in ways that may assist their major studies. The study is designed to assist students to develop notational skills, to investigate advanced concepts and to become aware of strategies for successfully articulating visual research.

Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. have a wide graphic visual vocabulary to serve and maximise their individual expressive needs;
  2. have aesthetic sensibilities that enable them to critically determine imagery that bridges both historical and contemporary art;
  3. productively develop a wide variety of visual material and techniques relevant to their major discipline;
  4. critically engage and produce drawing in relation to their conceptual direction and perceptive observations;
  5. understand and apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the discipline practice.
