Creative Drawing B ( 6 points, SCA Band 1, 0.125 EFTSL)


Leader: Kit Wise

Not offered in 2006.

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.

Objectives: On successful completion of this unit students should: 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. 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.

Contact Hours: 12 hours per week, including 3 studio hours and 9 independant study hours
