Synopsis

This unit provides students of art and design with a further opportunity to relate to a broader definition of drawing in relation to contemporary art practice and encourages the student 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, still life, nature and other resources to develop their individual practice in an increasingly informed manner.

Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit students should:

  1. have a wide graphic visual vocabulary to serve and maximise their individual expressive needs;

  1. have aesthetic sensibilities that enable them to critically determine imagery that bridges both historical and contemporary art;

  1. productively develop a wide variety of visual material and techniques relevant to their major discipline;

  1. have an understanding of the appropriate procedures for complying with OHS and ethical requirements in this area of study.

Assessment

By folio 100% (all objectives). Initial project or work-in-progress is assessed in the first part of the semester and contributes a weighting of no less than 20% to the final assessment.
