Emphasises contemporary conceptual and creative directions available to drawing practitioners. Students are exposed to and challenged by a series of studio and research-based projects which emphasise the limitations and latent opportunities within established drawing habits and conventional practices.
1. To further promote studio-based understanding of the history and theory of drawing and its cultural context.
2. To creatively explore experimental and non-conventional materials, processes and applications of drawing.
3. To modify, adapt and expand unquestioned dimensions of drawing practice in a contemporary context.
4. To generate discussion and critical analysis of contemporary trends in drawing across a range of cultures and societies.
Emphasis is placed on the development of individual interpretations and adaptations within a framework of projects and studio-based explorations devoted to various aspects of the syllabus:
1. Challenges to established practices and cliches;
2. Definitions, idealisations and principles of contemporary drawing practice.
3. Individual, collaborative, commissioned and site-specific options;
4. Alternative exhibition, presentation and installation formats;
5. Radical possibilities of scale, proportion,
dimension and application of materials and methods;
6. Concepts of multi-media investigations;
7. Critical seminars of completed projects;
8. Compilation of appropriate forms of studio practice documentation;
9. Relevant health, safety and ethical considerations.
