Unit of Competency CUADRA502 - Investigate drawing materials and processes
Description
Employability Skills
Learning Outcomes and Application This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to research and explore a range of drawing materials and processes to develop an individual professional style. This unit relates to drawing as an art form and differs from units that focus on drawing as a visual representation tool.It applies to highly skilled visual artists who integrate the use of those different materials and processes explored, to realise a body of creative work. They work with a high level of independence seeking mentoring and guidance as required.No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
Duration and Setting X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:

equipment, tools and materials used to produce drawings

relevant information sources.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.

Elements of Competency Performance Criteria              
Element: Research drawing materials and processes
  • Research ways that other artists have used different drawing materials and processes to achieve different effects and identify intellectual property requirements
  • Research physical properties and capabilities of a range of drawing materials
  • Investigate how different materials and drawing techniques best combine to achieve different technical effects
  • Investigate safety issues associated with different materials and processes
  • Collate and store safety and technical data to meet safety requirements for drawing work
  • Determine cost and supply issues for different materials
       
Element: Select drawing materials and processes for exploration

Element: Integrate drawing materials and processes into own work
  • Explore own new and different ways of working with materials and processes to achieve new effects and desired outcomes

  • Proactively identify and resolve technical problems with material use
  • Develop own ways of working with materials and processes to create individual style
  • Develop a coherent body of drawing work that shows command of selected drawing materials
  • Use safe work practices for handling materials and disposal of waste
       
Element: Manage drawing materials
  • Establish supply of drawing materials which meets price, quality and delivery expectations
  • Develop ways of working with materials that minimise waste
  • Maintain quality and maximise shelf-life of drawing materials through appropriate handling and storage

4.1 Establish supply of drawing materials which meets price, quality and delivery expectations

4.2 Develop ways of working with materials that minimise waste

4.3 Maintain quality and maximise shelf-life of drawing materials through appropriate handling and storage

Evidence of the ability to:

research the properties, capabilities and use of an extensive range of drawing materials to inform own work practice

refine the use of drawing materials through a process of thorough experimentation and practice to create a coherent body of drawing work which:

shows a command of chosen materials

demonstrates the development of an individual style

supports own ideas for work.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

describe intellectual property requirements relevant to producing drawing works

identify an extensive range of information sources that support research in drawing materials

describe, for an extensive range of materials used to produce drawings:

physical properties and capabilities

the characteristics of materials under different treatments and how they work to achieve different effects

limitations and constraints in achieving effects

describe how different materials and drawing techniques combine to achieve different technical effects

summarise supply sources for an extensive range of drawing materials used in professional practice

describe, for drawing materials, typical types, content and use of safety and technical data including Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

explain key safety requirements for drawing work.
