CCI105 Drawing to Design (8)

In this subject students develop experimental drawing skills, both to produce independent works of art and as a means of 'drawing-to-design' applied towards different disciplines in the creative industries. The subject investigates a range of approaches to drawing, including perceptual, conceptual, sculptural and performative drawing modes. Students develop the ability to align hand-work with computer based strategies for application in fine art and design contexts.
