Drawing is everywhere – it is a way of describing and making sense of the world, our dreams, emotions and actions. In this studio-based course students develop independent projects which explore drawing as both an autonomous contemporary practice and as a tool and process which informs interdisciplinary approaches to making. Taking advantage of the core traits of drawing, such as its immediacy, directness, temporality, and materiality, students will build discrete bodies of work informed by lectures, seminars, and collection visits. Work health and safety (WHS) is an integral component of this course.
