For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.

It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs.

Subject Overview:

In this subject students begin to address the issues and aesthetic problems raised through sustained periods of practical and critical investigation. This is carried out through discussion and studio practice: in class situations/group tutorials, individual tutorials, and in private studio time. Through consultation with lecturers and in classes, students explore a number of extended projects that can operate as conceptual starting points for their own studio practice in Drawing Studies 3. Participation in life drawing classes, slide talks, excursions, and departmental exhibitions is required as a continuation of this process. Students at all levels are encouraged to expand upon manual and technical skills and media possibilities relevant to their individual area of study within the drawing course.

Assessment: Assessment is based on a substantial folio of work including perceptual drawings, life drawings, sketchbooks/journals, pieces produced in the extended projects, and any other self initiated works the students may decide to submit (100%).
