Details of Learning Activities

Please note: This course is clustered with VART 5911C  Draw 3D Designs

In this course you will learn about and practice using the materials, techniques and tools to present textile design concepts.

Weekly learning activities are structured to provide you with the opportunity to develop design presentation skills  and knowledge to clearly communicate concepts.
 

Activities include:
• discussion of underpinning knowledge;
• demonstration of skills and technique;
• practical application;

This course is delivered in a simulated studio /workshop environment. Assessment tasks will be set in studio sessions and the details of all submissions will be provided with the project briefs.

During studio sessions, students will receive continuous feedback on how to improve and extend their art practice.

OHS policies and procedures must be adhered to at all times. Students must wear fully covered shoes at all times. It is strongly recommended that students wear overalls or protective clothing.

Overview of Assessment

To achieve successful completion of this course students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency.

Assessment tasks have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner.

Students will be awarded a grade only if competency has been demonstrated within the standard enrolment period on the first assessment attempt.

Units assessed as ’not yet competent’ on a first assessment attempt and ’competent’ on a second or subsequent attempt are to have results amended to competent but are not eligible for grading.

Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.
All work must be submitted by the due date. Late submission will not be graded higher than a PASS.
