Version 1.0
Issue Date: February 2019

Not Applicable

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to produce drawings which represent and communicate the concept. This is a core unit which complements all the specialisation units. It is different from the drawing specialisation units which focus on drawing as an art form. This unit goes beyond the scope of CUVCOR07B Use drawing techniques to represent the object or idea in terms of the complexity of techniques and representation. This work would usually be carried out under supervision.

This is a core unit which underpins many other specialisation units.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)


This unit has linkages to all specialisation units in the Visual Arts Craft and Design Training Package, and to units from other Training Packages.

Employability Skills

This unit contains employability skills.

Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

The following evidence is critical to the judgement of competence in this unit:

production of more than one drawing which demonstrate a command of the techniques and are appropriate for the presentation context.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

The assessment context must provide for:

practical demonstration of skills using a range of tools and materials to produce drawings which represent and communicate the concept.

Method of assessment

Assessment may incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of essential underpinning knowledge, and might include:

direct observation of work in progress

evaluation of drawings

questioning and discussion of candidate's intentions and work

verbal or written reports

review of portfolios of evidence

third party workplace reports of performance by the candidate.

Assessment of this unit requires access to the materials, resources and equipment needed to apply a number of drawing techniques.

Submission Requirements

Assessment Tasks

Copy and paste from the following data to produce each assessment task. Write these in plain English and spell out how, when and where the task is to be carried out, under what conditions, and what resources are needed. Include guidelines about how well the candidate has to perform a task for it to be judged satisfactory.

Required skills:

literacy skills sufficient to read product labels and instructions

numeracy skills sufficient to deal with basic scaling and layout issues.

Required knowledge:

general knowledge of the physical properties and capabilities of a range of commonly used drawing tools and materials

general knowledge of different approaches to drawing and how other practitioners use drawing to represent the concept

awareness of copyright, moral rights and intellectual property issues and legislation in relation to drawing

overview knowledge of the elements and principles of design

environmental and occupational health and safety issues associated with the tools and materials used for drawing.

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.

The concept may relate to an object or idea and may include:

crafted objects

design concepts

digital work


movement sequence

paintings or prints



story, narrative

technical solutions for a design or work.

Techniques may include:

digital drawing techniques

integration of text and drawing

linear marks of differing intensity and character

linear marks to produce illusion of form in space

linear perspective

scaling techniques

tonal range to produce illusion of form in space

use of positive/negative space.

Materials may include:

a range of graphite pencils

a range of papers




colour pencils



natural ochres

pastels and chalks




The presentation context may include:

design proposal

proposal for product or work development

proposals in response to a brief

visualisation of a concept.

Equipment may include:



digital technology

drawing and design applications

measuring tools






Copy and paste from the following performance criteria to create an observation checklist for each task. When you have finished writing your assessment tool every one of these must have been addressed, preferably several times in a variety of contexts. To ensure this occurs download the assessment matrix for the unit; enter each assessment task as a column header and place check marks against each performance criteria that task addresses.
