This creative process with allow for formal conventions of drawing to be discussed and practiced. The skills of observation, analysis, selection, interpretation and expression will be explored through ongoing projects which encourage the development of strong perceptual, analytical and conceptual awareness within the discipline. Students will be encouraged to begin exploring their own creative process, ideas, imagery and visual language within the drawing activities. Students will be required to initiate a personal body of drawing work which will include work from both within and outside of class. At each stage throughout this unit students will be encourage to consider and relate specifically to the creative act of drawing in light of Christian faith and spirituality especially in light of what ethical and moral issues may be raised in light of the issues of representation.
