Contemporary Drawing A (CADR1001)


The First Year Contemporary Drawing Program introduces students to the concept that drawing underpins all art practices. This understanding is achieved by exploring divergent approaches to drawing practices. Drawing is presented as an art practice in its own right, as well as support for the Studio-specific programs. Students will rotate through two of the four blocks: Life Drawing, Computer Drawing, Incidental Drawing and Experimental Drawing.
