88711 VC Drawing



This subject investigates the practice of drawing as a tool of creativity and discovery. The main concern is the exploration of mark-making itself along with the surfaces, materials, space, scale and composition that provide the context for those marks. Through several distinct modules, students look at drawing as representation and extension of reality; as a tool to visualise their thoughts. Students explore this expanding practice in a contemporary context through examples and guests presenting their practice based insights on drawing. Each studio session introduces students to how drawing enriches different areas of creative inquiry, encouraging their own exploration which forms one of the subject outcomes: the critical drawing portfolio. A major work is developed alongside this portfolio to further individual and independent learning in addition to the collaborative studio approach.
