About the Course

This course takes an in depth look at the nature of drawing. It encourages you to take apart the elements of drawing practice and scrutinise them. The course also focuses on the crucial relationship between contextual research, visual research and drawing practice. It is expected that you will leave the course with a robust and healthy working method; able to articulate and synthesise your knowledge, understanding and skills effectively and creatively. This will enable you to move confidently onto the next level. You are expected to use the projects as starting points, generating your own ideas, proposals and arguments. As the focus of the course is on the nature of drawing and the thinking processes that underpin it, there is a great deal of freedom in terms of selection of visual source material. The parallel project and critical review both place responsibility on you to choose suitable subject matter for enquiry. Drawing hones our visual sense and teaches us to see the world around us in a unique way. It is expected that you will maintain your observational drawing independently throughout this course in your sketchbook and elsewhere, taking it into projects as appropriate.
