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.
