Synopsis

Practical and intellectual skills required by students of design in drawing. Through a sequence of topics that make use of the human figure and both natural and made objects, the skills in observation, representation, visualisation and organisation are promoted. Individual interpretation and response is encouraged to assist students' development of visual and aesthetic awareness necessary to the major study.

Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. be able to represent objects by drawing, expressing their form and volume and showing a basic understanding of structure
  2. use their understanding of the relationships between the formal elements of line, tone and shape incorporated within compositional dynamics
  3. understand an appropriate range of drawing methods and materials pertinent to the study
  4. visualise and express this ability through appropriate forms of notation
  5. be curious about the historical, theoretical, philosophical and aesthetic contexts that inform drawing practice.
