Final year students motivate their own projects and this module can be used by students from any option, including photography, who see drawing as an art form in addition to investigation and analysis.
The aim of the Drawing 3 module is to explore within the bounds of a graphic medium, subject matter that is of central interest to the student that is the basis for work being completed in other areas such as painting, photography and printmaking and illustration.
The works – ‘drawings’ – completed for this module should be seen as ends in themselves, rather than just as studies, sketches or preliminary studies towards final pieces in other media. It is important however that strong links are identified between this module and work being completed in other areas and the finished drawings should be viewed as complementing, supporting and allied to this other work.
It is hoped that by completing this module, students will have a clearer understanding of the subject matter that they are dealing with - leading to a sound foundation for work to be embarked upon during the following semester.
Throughout the duration of the module the students are given the opportunity to discuss their work with the rest of the group – referring to the nature of the subject matter, its meaning to them, what methods of research have been used, the strategy used for developing ideas, development of media used and how the drawings relate to work completed in other areas.
They are also urged to contextualise and inform their working practice by researching the work of specific artists who are of interest to them and whom they feel are of influence
The module aims:
To consolidate upon the self-directed mode of study leading to a mature and professional approach in all areas of working practice.
To initiate and develop consideration of subject matter and content in relation to the personality of the student.
To develop and consolidate links with subject matter being used in other modules and encourage a dialogue between different working disciplines.
To further technical knowledge and competence relevant to the student’s intentions.
To encourage experimentation and risk-taking in the setting of problems and use of the medium.
To expand the boundaries of understanding of what constitutes drawing.
To develop the student’s ability to articulate and discuss the above in a reasoned, critical and thought-provoking manner.
To encourage students to contextualise their work in relation to past and present art practice and ideas focusing upon artists of specific interest.
Upon completion of the module students will possess:
A capacity for self-directed study.
A series of drawings that demonstrate research and exploration of subject matter leading to a well developed and finished set of images.
Evidence of a developing dialogue with work being carried out in other modules as demonstrated in the portfolio submitted for assessment.
A broader technical vocabulary showing evidence of using a range of materials and mark making media appropriate to the subject matter, concept and intent.
A well developed strategy for generating and developing ideas and a set of critical and evaluative tools relevant to the modus operandi.
A consciousness of the wider context of art practice in relation to their own work and an informed knowledge of specific artists who have had a bearing upon their thinking and development of the work.
The development of a ‘log book’ comprising collected information and analysis of artists who are of interest to them.
