Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

This course is delivered concurrently with

VART 5905C Use of colour in textiles and
VART 5903CTextile design influences.

VART5904C Assist in the development of textile designs

Projects and assessment tasks have been designed to directly link to each of these competencies.

It is recommended that students ensure that enrollment in each of these courses occurs during the same teaching period.

Course Description

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

Drawing tasks undertaken in this course will be directly applied into Design units

Learning Outcomes


This studio based course gives students the opportunity to undertake practical assessment tasks that enable them to apply -

• general knowledge of physical properties and capabilities of the most commonly used materials and tools used in drawings
• general knowledge of different styles of drawing and the work of key practitioners
• overview knowledge of the formal elements and principles of design
• introductory knowledge of the historical and theoretical contexts for drawing
• typical work space and tool requirements for the production of different types drawings
• cleaning and maintenance techniques for tools used in drawing
• awareness of copyright, moral rights and intellectual property issues
• environmental issues associated with the tools and materials used in drawing
• organisational and legislative occupational health and safety procedures in relation to drawing
• literacy skills sufficient to read product safety labels
• numeracy skills sufficient to calculate quantities


Details of Learning Activities

On completion of the course students will be able to demonstrate the skills and knowledge to work in a studio practice with knowledge of OH&S and 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 progressively provide fundamental drawing skills and knowledge from basic to more complex and will include;
• discussions of underpinning knowledge;
• demonstration of skills and techniques;
• presentation of work for discussion and review
• students engaged in applied learning exercises.

Professional studio practice is conducted primarily in the classroom at tables and easels plus
field trips to sites relevant to the practice of specific learning activities and integration of design briefs.

Overview of Assessment

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

Assessement 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 exersices

Folio of drawings
indvidual and group presentations
The students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.

This unit is concurrently delivered with VART 5905C Use of Colour in Textiles and VART 5903C AnalyseTextile Design Influences and VART5904C Assist in the development of textile designs

Several assessement tasks will be assessed across these courses.


Assessment Tasks

You will undertake 3 major Drawing and research projects designed to enable you to progressively develop your skills and knowledge related to the themes.

Detailed briefs with specific assessment criteria and breakdown will be provided in class sessions and on Blackboard.
Submission items for each the following projects will  include:
Visual Diary  - containing all required research and  and development work
Drawing folio of selected completed drawings  and exercises
 

Projects
• Botanica 40%
• Graphica 40%
• Colour and form 20%

Observational Checklist (marked as competent or not yet competent - Week 6
You will also  be assessed on OHS and Studio Practice
