Drawing 3A FSD330



In this unit you will expand the conventions and practices of drawing through planning, developing and realising open-ended projects based in exploratory work. The focus is on developing inventive methods of drawing that may be either based in traditional media or hybrid forms of drawing that crosses 2D, 3D and 4D media boundaries. Drawing projects may be projective, observational or process-based but are to extend the merely descriptive.  Reflective and contextual journaling is essential to project development and progression. You will write a statement of intent (proposal) and an artwork statement proposal and communicate the developments in project work through class critique.

This unit will help you to develop and apply knowledge of drawing; engage directly in the problems and possibilities of creative enquiry through contemporary drawing in an expanding field of practice; develop new forms of research skills and an appreciation for the importance of global trans-disciplinary practices inherent within drawing; develop skills in visual analysis of drawings; develop competence in using relevant drawing materials.
