CAEL1002: Contemporary Drawing: The Figure

This unit encourages you to develop your own visual language and to develop greater visual literacy as a catalyst for creative thought. By working through practice-led classes developed for online delivery, you will learn ways of evaluating, describing and illustrating the various elements of a visual image such as shape and form, space, line, values and texture. You will apply, test and question these techniques by developing your own conceptually driven project. In addition to studio based activities, you will develop a portfolio, establish an archive of source material, participate in peer-evaluation and undertake theoretical research.
