Unit Description

This unit builds on Creative Practice Foundations With a focus on contemporary drawing practice and its established prominence as a medium in its own right: Drawing by developing and extending the creative process, including ideas, imagery and visual language, through drawing techniques and practice in the context of Contemporary Drawing practice. Students will continue to develop and extend their skills through sustaining a substantial body of work in the form of a folio and journal which will include work from both within and outside of class. Ongoing projects will continue to develop strong perceptual, analytical and conceptual awareness within the discipline by extending skills of observation, analysis, selection, interpretation and expression. Numerous forms (for example, the human figure) will provide the underlying basis for investigating proportion, perspective, structure and space through understanding line, tone and shape. At each stage throughout this unit students will be asked to critically evaluate the creative act of drawing in the context of the Christian faith and spirituality especially in light of what ethical and moral issues may be raised in connection with the issues of representation.
