Release 1

This version first released with CUA Creative Arts and Culture Training Package version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • explore ideas, techniques and historical and contemporary printmaking practice and choose techniques to support own work
  • identify and acquire resources required to complete chosen work
  • adapt and use combined printmaking techniques to create a single major work or multiple prints that show technical proficiency in chosen techniques
  • review and document the work process.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • outline basic intellectual property considerations for printmaking work
  • outline methods of exploring techniques to achieve different effects in printmaking
  • summarise the main aspects of historical and contemporary printmaking practice and how they can inform own design ideas
  • describe, for the elements and principles of design, the key characteristics, key interrelationships and use in prints
  • summarise, for a range of tools and equipment used to produce prints, key physical features and uses, cleaning and maintenance techniques and storage requirements
  • describe the physical properties and capabilities of a range of materials and techniques used to produce prints
  • discuss typical work space requirements for producing prints including ways of organising space and equipment for efficient work operation
  • describe procedures for working safely with printmaking materials, tools and equipment.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:

  • equipment, tools and materials used to produce prints
  • relevant information sources.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
