Course Description

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to produce drawings that represent and communicate ideas. It does not relate to drawing as an art form.
People working in many industries apply the skills and knowledge in this unit.
Ideas for communication are diverse and may include design concepts for objects, processes or spaces, or movement sequences for performances or screen productions. Drawings may be for personal use or for presentation in exhibitions, tender bid proposals or publications. Drawing may be electronic or hand drawn.
At this level, the individual would take some responsibility for experimentation with a range of drawing techniques and be expected to show some command of those techniques.

Students will learn Vector graphic software skills and design drawing skills based on the principles and elements for design to prepare students to a diploma level
