Drawing is a critical skill for artists and designers: as a thinking process; as a communicative tool, and as an art medium in its own right. In this unit, students will gain a working knowledge of traditional and contemporary drawing strategies germane to visual art and design practice. It aims to develop skills across representational, interpretive, and expressive modes of drawing. Content is delivered within three modules.

1. Drawing foundations:

Development of perceptual skills - observation and analysis of the physical world (including the human figure); perspective drawing; graphic mark making and media handling.

2. Drawing for design:

Drawing as a developmental tool in the design process.  Drawing as a tool for representing and communicating design concepts and ideas.

3. Contemporary drawing strategies:

Contemporary trends, experimental, expressive, and interpretive approaches to drawing practice.
