Drawing Unlimited

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The project was designed to encourage and develop student interaction via drawing activities, alongside their peers, those from other disciplines and from other year groups. The project focus was on student interaction and experiential learning (Kolb and Fry,1975). The drawing workshops were designed to accommodate and challenge the participants’ learning styles using a variety of teaching and learning methods. The workshops encouraged cross pollination of ideas and drawing methods between Design for Visual Communication (Viscom) students (input from all year groups) and Foundation Art and Design students.
