Visual Communication Design

* This is a Material Intensive Elective. Confirmed enrolment in this Elective is conditional on payment of the Material Intensive charge of $25.

Do you want to improve your drawing skills? Learn how to draw what you can see and make shapes look 3D in both graphite pencil and colour. You will be shown how to make objects look like they are made from different materials like timber, metal, glass and more. Develop your skills in linear perspective to create the illusion of depth on you page and use a wide variety of wet and dry drawing media and illustration techniques.

You will complete short drawing tasks and undertake longer visual communication design briefs that will apply the skills learnt in class.

Successful completion of this subject is indicated by the completion of the following class work:

  • Folio of completed presentations
  • Up to date and neatly presented Visual Diary that contains all notes, drawing exercises, techniques and visual references
  • Written work and homework including research assignments and analysis

You are expected to supply basic equipment as per the book list.

This unit is designed to prepare students for VCE Visual Communication Design and would be useful for VCE Art and Design Technology.
