This studio-based course explores a range of experimental approaches to drawing and its relationship to contemporary art practice. In the twentieth century, many artists made line the subject of sustained exploration and in this course students will have the opportunity to extend and expand these investigations. Using a range of materials and processes, combined with lectures and seminars, students will work through a series of projects aimed at developing a broader understanding of the extraordinary range of possibilities offered by drawing. Work health and safety (WHS) instruction is an integral component of this course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Upon successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and the skills to:
- competently utilise a range of skills relevant to experimental drawing in response to set projects;
- explore the potential of a range of materials and processes used in drawing;
- investigate the inventive application of concepts and processes relevant to experimental drawing; and
- engage with historical and theoretical contexts relevant to the set projects.
Occasional excursions may be scheduled throughout the semester.
Additional Course Costs
The School of Art & Design provides additional access to the workshop areas and use of equipment, tooling and consumable items during extra hours.

Academic integrity is a core part of the ANU culture as a community of scholars. At its heart, academic integrity is about behaving ethically, committing to honest and responsible scholarly practice and upholding these values with respect and fairness.
The ANU commits to assisting all members of our community to understand how to engage in academic work in ways that are consistent with, and actively support academic integrity. The ANU expects staff and students to be familiar with the academic integrity principle and Academic Misconduct Rule, uphold high standards of academic integrity and act ethically and honestly, to ensure the quality and value of the qualification that you will graduate with.
The Academic Misconduct Rule is in place to promote academic integrity and manage academic misconduct. Very minor breaches of the academic integrity principle may result in a reduction of marks of up to 10% of the total marks available for the assessment. The ANU offers a number of online and in person services to assist students with their assignments, examinations, and other learning activities. Visit the Academic Skills website for more information about academic integrity, your responsibilities and for assistance with your assignments, writing skills and study.
All studio work and accompanying documentation is physically presented and assessed in the end of the semester, except where otherwise stated (Oral Presentations). Please note that in the event of implementing Covid safe work practices such as working from home, it may be necessary for student work to be documented and uploaded for remote assessment.
Late submission not permitted. If submission of assessment tasks without an extension after the due date is not permitted, a mark of 0 will be awarded.
Accepted academic practice for referencing sources that you use in presentations can be found via the links on the Wattle site, under the file named “ANU and College Policies, Program Information, Student Support Services and Assessment”. Alternatively, you can seek help through the Students Learning Development website.
Students will take work with them following assessment.
