This unit has linkages to all the specialisation units in the Visual Arts Craft and Design Training Package and to units from other Training Packages.
Elements and Performance Criteria
1 Prepare for drawing.
1.1 Correctly identify tools and materials required for basic drawing techniques.
1.2 Select appropriate tools and materials for basic drawing techniques.
2 Use basic drawing techniques.
2.1 Apply a limited range of techniques to represent the object or idea.
2.2 Handle tools and materials safely.
literacy skills sufficient to read product labels and instructions
numeracy skills sufficient to deal with basic scaling and layout issues.
general knowledge of the physical properties and capabilities of the most commonly used materials and tools for drawing
general knowledge of different approaches to drawing and the work of other practitioners in relation to using drawing to represent an object or idea
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 in drawing work.
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 represents the object or idea and which shows command of the basic technique/s used.
Context of and specific resources for assessment
The assessment context must provide for:
practical demonstration of skills through the production of drawings.
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
questioning and discussion of the candidate's intentions and work
verbal or written reports
review of portfolios of evidence
third party workplace reports of performance by the candidate.
Assessment methods should closely reflect workplace demands (e.g. literacy) and the needs of particular groups (e.g. people with disabilities and people who may have literacy or numeracy difficulties e.g. speakers of languages other then English, remote communities and those with interrupted schooling).
Assessment of this unit requires access to the materials and resources needed to apply basic drawing techniques.
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 object or idea may include a:
piece of jewellery or other wearable object
story or narrative
Techniques may include:
application of pigment
linear marks of differing character
linear marks to produce illusion of form in space
simple linear perspective
tonal ranges to produce illusion of form in space.
Materials and tools may include:
a range of graphite pencils
a range of papers
pastels and chalks
in accordance with relevant occupational health and safety practices and legislation.
This unit contains employability skills.
