Course Description

Fine Art & Design – Drawing Print Mixed Media

National College of Art & Design NCAD

This course is designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge to develop their practice in print and drawing within a contemporary context. The course contains two parts: Drawing-Mixed Media and Printmaking. The two subject areas are complementary and to complete them successfully students will have to undertake self-directed learning outside of class time.

Students will be encouraged to use the library, which contains a rich source of texts for ideas developments. Students will engage in project work involving gathering source material for visual research and notebook work, which can be further developed through various projects. The same process will apply to both subjects, students will be encouraged to experiment, develop ideas and establish a creative approach to the development of subject matter. Assessment and feedback will take place at the end of each term.
