Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities


Course Description

This course is designed to introduce you to 2D and 3D production skills using basic drawing principles and colour theory. You will experiment with a wide range of mediums and methods and apply them to your conceptual ideas. Skills you learn in this course will be used across projects in all your design courses.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

See Learning Outcomes.

Course Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to:

  1. Explore and demonstrate a range of drawing and rendering techniques.
  2. Apply colour theory principles.
  3. Experiment with a wide range of 2D & 3D materials and media used in design.

Program Learning Outcomes

In this course you will develop the following program learning outcomes:

  1. Explain and apply foundational knowledge in one or more academic disciplines.
  2. Work independently and in groups to meet learning outcomes.
  3. Apply approaches to critical and analytical thinking and problem solving.
  4. Use a range of current learning technologies to enhance academic outcomes.

Overview of Learning Activities

Project work will incrementally build on knowledge gained from earlier projects so that as they increase in complexity, they also help you to reinforce knowledge introduced in earlier projects.

Practical demonstrations and understanding of learning outcomes will be developed through exercises and projects. Your visual diary and project development will be supervised and assessed progressively in a studio environment.

Overview of Learning Resources

RMIT will provide you with resources and tools for learning in this course through our online systems. You will be given access to important announcements staff contact details, the teaching schedule, assessment timelines and a variety of important teaching and learning materials.

You can access online learning tools and content for your program and associated courses at MyRMIT.

Overview of Assessment

You will be assessed on how well you meet the courses learning outcomes and on your development against the program learning outcomes. Assessment tasks will include Projects, and a Visual Diary. Your projects are linked and will build on each other. Feedback to help you improve your work will be given on all assessment tasks.

Assessment tasks will include:

  • Studio Project 1 – 25% LO1, LO2, LO3
  • Studio Project 2 – 25% LO1, LO2, LO3
  • Studio Project 3 – 25% LO1, LO2, LO3
  • Studio Project 4 – 25% LO1, LO2, LO3

If you have a long term medical condition and/or disability it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning and assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.

Your course assessment conforms to RMIT assessment principles, regulations, policies, procedures and instructions which are available for review online:
