VDIS10028 Observational Drawing
Credit Points 15
Observational drawing is the core method of researching, investigating, developing and communicating ideas. Through
freehand drawing, students will learn key skills to communicate characteristics of subjects related to Visual Communication and Graphic Design. Students will also develop skills and experience in visual thinking processes, problem solving, and effective communication of ideas through drawing.
Important concept development requires students to transcribe objects from a three dimensional space to a two dimensional plane and these skills will be learned from exercises, assessment tasks, discussions, critiques and reflections. This subject allows students to gain in-depth perspectives of observational drawing as a tool to record, analyse and communicate information about subjects within the graphic design profession. Students will learn to reflect on their work in a constructive manner integrating feedback back into their work.
