Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

Evidence of the ability to:

  • produce more than one drawing that represents an object or idea

  • direct observation of work in progress
  • review of drawings produced by the candidate
  • oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of drawing techniques and materials
