Details of Learning Activities

Through the course of the Semester the Project document will be formed to infer areas of proposed conceptual investigation, practice based enquires and will scope and link all studio based Courses and activities undertaken by the student. Research, reflections, and appropriate notes resulting from access to Theory Courses will also be developed within the Project document.
Interdisciplinary drawing will reflect the investigation developed within each student’s individual Project document. Idea development related to drawing, as an interdisciplinary practice will be developed through individual tutorials.

All students will be required to develop a resource of drawings that inform the work in their major area of practice. This will occur under the guidance of academic staff with expertise in the field of drawing to develop an understanding in the student of the role of drawing conceptually and technically.
