This is an intermediate level course. It is a practical project based course that focuses on idea generation, concept development and the creation of text and image design through longer, more in-depth projects than in Level 1. Students work to set briefs which are interpreted in an individual way with teacher guidance and feedback. This is not a computer course. The course also includes an information component covering course structure, folio content and interview technique.
Students are expected to have some familiarity with a range of manual art creation techniques and have an understanding of the design process. Previous participation in Level 1 is ideal but not essential. This course is for current VCE students in year 11 and 12 or mature age participants who are interested in this area of design or for those wishing to extend their folio of work through a range of briefs and techniques.
Upon completion of this course, students will have had the opportunity to attempt a number of intermediate projects. Students would have gained some skills to independently continue the design process to achieve new and individual outcomes.
All relevant course materials are included.
Students need to bring a pencil, eraser, white-out pen, fine and medium soft pointed brushes, black Fine liner-type pen, a 30-40 cm ruler, glue-stick and a pair of scissors and a fine cutting knife.
Participants will be awarded an RMIT Statement of Participation.
Participation has no influence on the selection of students into RMIT award programs. Short Course activities may include opportunity to prepare for a folio, experience of the studio environment, provide an industry and study overview, and assistance with study options.Printable course flyer
