Synopsis

This unit provides students with the opportunity to relate to a broader definition of drawing in relation to contemporary art practice, and encourages students, through bold graphic experimentation, to maximise their capacity for individual invention and expression in responding to a variety of natural forms. Students will work from the model, the still life and from nature.

Objectives

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  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.
