Drawing 3B FSD331




In this unit you will extend and refine investigative forms of drawing through self-directed projects designed to align ideas with form, methods and materials. Through guided research into the form and content of your artwork you will increase your understanding of the reflective, abstract and synthetic making and thinking processes essential to quality art practice and to generating ideas significant to you as an artist. You will learn to create meaningful and expressive connections between the content of your artwork and its visual form through selection of appropriate materials and methods, which may or may not be confined to conventional drawing media.

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. You will also learn to examine the context and audience in which, and for which, artworks are made, and to site your artwork within an exhibition context.
