VISUAL ARTS MEDIA WORKSHOP B

VPA1MWB

2017

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In Visual Arts Media Workshop B, Drawing  progressively develops the student's abilities of observation, perception and analysis of form. Through observation and visual perception (i.e. being able to look at an object, analyse the relationship of size, shape, value and texture), students will increase their aptitude to draw realistically. Exploration of a variety of linear and tonal techniques will assist students in being able to translate, directly from observation, three-dimensional information into marks on a two-dimensional surface. Assessment is based on the submission of a portfolio of set projects designed to develop student's conceptual and technical skills in drawing and the presentation of a Studio Research Journal/Visual Diary.
