Synopsis

An intensive program which extends students' intellectual and practical skills in seeing, observation, analysis, selection and visual expression; sequential projects are set to facilitate these outcomes. Individual response and interpretation are encouraged to assist students to develop a personal visual language that underpins and aids their major study.

Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. be able to represent objects and their spatial relationships with a growing understanding of form and volume, their underlying structures, and how these are manipulated to achieve a successful expressive outcome;
  2. competently use a broad range of drawing methods and materials;
  3. have a deepening understanding of the theoretical, aesthetic, philosophical and historical contexts that inform conventional and contemporary Fine Art drawing practice and a curiosity to pursue these issues further;
  4. be able to consider the aesthetic possibilities arising from the tension between expressive impulses and observational objectivity;
  5. relish the capacity to observe and assess previous visual knowledge by discovering new knowledge; to analyse these discoveries and, by selection and sythesis, develop an individual expressive response and working process that may form the basis for a personal visual language.
