Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
VART5137 – Drawing Level 3
Students extend, utilise and interpret their knowledge of drawing and drawing practices in the production of a series of works which reflect and reinforce a major area of study. The resulting work will display a strong conceptual base and a unique personal style.
In this course, Drawing is recognised as both an autonomous medium in its own right as well as a medium for recording and shaping initial ideas for further development in other disciplines.

Week 2: Introduction to Drawing 4. Drawing as a vehicle for self-expression, a support for studio practice and as a vital component in the development of an individual visual language is discussed and illustrated via a power point presentation looking at the various ways in which contemporary artists utilise drawing. The first project is handed out and discussed.
Weeks 3-17: Drawing is delivered through a studio based tutorial programme that is tailored by the teaching staff for individual student’s learning requirements. A series of projects are presented for the students to choose from with the aim that through this research an independent studio practice will evolve.
