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 student will be required to submit a final folio of selected drawings.


Details of project briefs will be presented in studio sessions

Assessment Tasks

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
