Details of Learning Activities

This course describes the skills and knowledge required to use techniques, materials and tools for the production of drawings.

On completion of the course students will be able to demonstrate the skills and knowledge of a range of drawing styles to:
• facilitate integrated course content across the Textile Diploma.
• provide general knowledge and basic drawing techniques relevant to Textile and other Design industries.


Weekly learning activities are structured to provide you with the opportunity to develop drawing skills and knowledge to clearly communicate three dimensional form.
Activities include
• discussion of underpinning knowledge;
• demonstration of skills and technique;
• students engaged in applied learning exercises.
Professional studio practice is conducted primarily in the classroom at tables and easels, with occasions for field trips to sites relevant to the
practice of specific learning activities and industry research.

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.

Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including:

Visual Diary /journal
Problem solving and drawing exercises
Folio of drawings
individual and group presentations


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.

The students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.


Assessment Tasks

Students will undertake a range of practical exercises which will enable them to develop their drawing techniques and ability to draw three dimensional forms.
Drawings tasks will be linked with design projects and you will be required to submit a final folio of selected drawings.
Details of project briefs will be presented in studio sessions
 

3 projects - 90%
• Neckwear (’home’ Theme) - 50% (folio, visual diary and presentation)
• Life Drawing Folio - 30% (folio and visual diary)
• 3D interior - perspective - 20% (folio and visual diary)
Visual diary
You will be required to maintain a visual diary for all projects through this course. The visual diary will be included in the assessment of projects.
It should contain a variety of drawing references and notations about process and ideas including:
• Continuous collection of inspirational images and information for artist/designer resource –
• Sketches of own ideas
• Sketches of clients products
• Sourced fabrics
• Images related to product concepts
• Notations re: discussions
• Specifications
• Colour palettes
• Textile examples
• Conceptual imagery
• Life drawing references including samples of artist works that inspire you- stylistic approach use of tone, line mediums
• Research for 1 point and 2 point perspective
• Drawing exercises for 1 and 2 point perspective
Observational Checklist - Will include OH&S and studio practice
• Will be conducted during class time week 9
• Will be assessed as Competent / Not Yet Competent.

All folio work must be presented in a clean, neat and professional manner in a folio. Presentation techniques will be discussed during weekly studio sessions.
Work must not be rolled or folded.
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.

The students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.
