Contemporary Drawing introduces you to the idea that drawing can serve as a universal process relevant to all art practices and applications of creative thinking. Through collaborative and individual projects, you are challenged to extend and expand your understanding of drawing as: an art practice in its own right; a form of notation, documentation and archive; a problem solving tool; a place to speculate and synthesise; a means to scrutinise and investigate; a method to express aspects of the imagined; and a way to evolve and communicate ideas, and develop thoughts. This unit of study focuses on Time-Based Drawing to encourage you to develop your own visual language as a catalyst for creative thought and a means to develop greater visual literacy. Time-based drawing asks you to consider time as an elastic medium that can be extended, made circular, wound backwards, and articulated through narrative, serial practices and unfolding processes. You will develop a portfolio and establish archives of source material that you can draw on for future creative endeavours.
