- Paper Structure
- The purpose of this paper is to equip students with little previous art experience,
or those who do have some experience in this subject, to engage in a negotiated, personal
art investigation. The paper will allow students to learn processes for drawing for
investigation and for the generation and development of art projects. It will introduce
students to an appropriate range of media and technical processes in drawing, painting
and an appropriate extension medium, and it will introduce students to the range of
formal and conventional practices necessary to inform their own art making.
The paper will also develop the skills necessary to investigate, analyse and evaluate the works of other artists in related contexts in ways that can contribute to the development of students' own art projects.
