  • Category B broadening unit for students

This unit is open to students from all disciplines who wish to refine and advance their technical skills and knowledge in the fields of drawing, painting and printmedia. Students undertake intensive studio based workshops supported by online learning content, extending the foundational structures for developing independent sustainable work practices, critical conceptual processes and a confident and considered visual language. Students are encouraged to take a multidisciplinary and conceptually rigorous approach to drawing, painting and print, engaging ideas and methodologies from their other areas of study with a view to refining these interests and skills through specialisation in Level 3. This unit may involve working at off-campus locations so that students have the opportunity to learn ‘in situ'.
Students are able to (1) demonstrate an understanding and application of the practices, languages, forms, materials, technologies and techniques in drawing, painting and printmedia; (2) develop concepts and processes by thinking creatively, critically and reflectively; (3) demonstrate technical competency in utilising a range of skills relevant to drawing, painting and printmedia; (4) explore the potential of a range of materials and processes used in drawing, painting and printmedia; and (5) communicate information, ideas and proposals effectively in written, oral and creative modes.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) creative work; (2) written work; and (3) oral presentation(s). Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
