This unit will build on your knowledge about drawing and its many forms in contemporary practice. You will be encouraged to engage with the possibilities and potential of drawing in its broadest sense through use of forms and materials both conventional and non-conventional. The unit will also develop your problem-solving skills in relation to making and encourage you to engage more deeply in your thinking and your place in the world so that you can with engage the things significant to you as an artist.
You will undertake self-directed drawing projects that will focus experimentation and open-ended learning. The emphasis in all project work is recognizing, valuing and applying the learning and opportunities that arise through risk-taking and pushing at the limits of what you know.
Project work is supported by discussion and group critiques. Journal work is central to project development and you are required to keep a record of your ideas, insights, concepts, methods and learning processes and contextualize these through study of works of other artists and innovative examples of practice that have transformed the nature of drawing and its uses.
Summative feedback will be given after week 5 (30%) and after final unit assessment (70%).
TEACHING PATTERN: 3 hrs studio session weekly, and an expectation of at least an additional 3 hrs independent practical work per week (13 weeks)
