Learning activities will take place in a studio, workshop or classroom using industry standard tools and resources. You will complete exercises and industry style projects. You will also be required to undertake independent study.
The delivery mode will be face to face.
In class activities will include:
• class exercises to review discussions/lectures
• practical demonstrations
• analysis/critique of relevant reading material
• design activities or projects
• peer teaching and class presentations
• group discussion
• online research
• independent project based work
• teacher directed group activities/projects
• site visits (observations)
• studio practice
• tutorials
• ‘workshopping’ of student projects including peer/lecturer feedback
• other activities as decided by teaching staff
Out of class activities may include:
• online research
• independent project based work
• teacher directed group activities/projects
• site visits (observations)
• design activities or projects
• online activiities
 


Teaching Schedule

Please note: While your teacher will cover all the material in this schedule, the weekly order is subject to change depending on class needs and availability of speakers and resources.

Overview of Assessment

Evidence of the following is essential:
• production of a range of samples or concept realisations which show the creative application of processes to 2-dimensional forms
• knowledge of the design process as it applies to 2-dimensional work.


Assessment Tasks

Evidence of the following is essential:
• production of a range of samples or concept realisations which show the creative application of processes to 2-dimensional forms
• knowledge of the design process as it applies to 2-dimensional work.
 
TASK 1 -The elements & principles design statement using the city walk - due week 3
This assessment relates to learning the language of the design industry. It will involve taking photographs and sketching on a
’City Walk’ and participating in class discussion about design elements and principals. It will involve a written design statement.

TASK 3 - Rug Design and oral presentation- due week 9 This project brings together all the elements of previous learning and
applies them to a series of a  A3 board displaying an original rug design. This project will be assessed with an industry partner.
It will be assessed on separate criteria in both this unit and the clustered unit
GRAP5356C Prepare a materials board for client presentation.LMFID4003A.

TASK 4 -  Process Journal  - due week 9.  An A3 process journal will be a record of investigations undertaken,
design concepts and development across all these projects.It will be assessed on separate criteria in both
this unit and the clustered unit GRAP5356C Prepare a materials board for client presentation.LMFID4003A.
