Related Studies explores a range of practical approaches to drawing and printmaking, and analyses syntactical structures of image processing, including the broader issues of how images operate within specific contexts, both historical and contemporary. Students are also encouraged to investigate drawing and printmedia through experimentation around relationships between drawing, printmaking, and other studio based visual art practices. The subject comprises set projects and structured classes in perceptually based and expanded drawing and printmedia practices. Relevant imaging issues are addressed via regular group discussions and critique sessions. Students are required to maintain sketchbooks and diaries.
This subject will enable students to:
• Develop an expanded awareness of imaging possibilities through the exploration of a variety of concepts, media, materials and practices;
• Exhibit evidence of skill development both pictorially and technically, in the field of drawing and print media;
• Indicate evidence of individual research in drawing and printmedia;
• Display an advanced understanding of relationships between drawing and printmedia, and other contemporary studio-based visual art practices.
Assessment is based on a substantial folio of work demonstrating the range of a student’s activities during the semester, including any group of finished works, support work, drawings, journals/sketchbooks etc. and other works/material in any media the student chooses to submit (100%). For more detailed assessment information refer to your program’s subject handouts.
Ongoing feedback is provided to students via individual and group tutorials. The mid-semester review takes into account the student’s progress against the following criteria:
• Course engagement
• Work development
• Studio use
Formal feedback is given to students who are deemed to be at risk. Academic staff write progress reports during the semester that students sight and sign. A single mark is assigned at the end of the semester.
Hurdle Requirement: Students must attend 80% of all scheduled classes for the folio to be considered for assessment purposes.
