Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to produce drawings that represent and communicate ideas. It does not relate to drawing as an art form. It involves planning drawing work, experimenting with ideas and producing drawings.

The unit applies to those who use drawings, either digital or hand drawn, for personal use or in response to a project or brief. They allow for visual communication and are used as visual representation tools. Drawings may include design concepts for objects, layout planning, illustrations, processes, sequences or spaces.
