Creative Drawing (BAE103)


This module introduces drawing as a medium for representation, expression and meaning making. Designed to expand students’ understanding of drawing through perceptual and conceptual workshops, this module will also examine contemporary art approaches to this age old art form. A studio-thinking approach will be modelled in this course.
