Unit Descriptor

Unit descriptor 

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to explore and integrate colour theory and design processes using 2-dimensional (2D) and/or 3-dimensional (3D) space. This is a core unit in design fundamentals and as such underpins many other specialisation units. People working in many industries require the skills and knowledge in this unit, and the unit is written to allow for contextualisation to a particular industry context.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.

Pre-Requisites

Prerequisite units 

This unit underpins many specialisation units, both within the Visual Arts Craft and Design Training Package, and other Training Packages, e.g. Entertainment. It is highly recommended that this unit be assessed in conjunction with those units.

Employability Skills Information

Employability skills 

This unit contains employability skills.

Elements and Performance Criteria Pre-Content

Elements describe the essential outcomes of a unit of competency.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised  text is used, further information is detailed in the required skills and knowledge section and the range statement. Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the evidence guide.

Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

1 Examine information on colour theory and design processes .

1.1 Identify and access relevant sources of information  on colour theory and design processes.

1.2 Examine information with consideration of how colour and design issues may be integrated in the design process.

2 Apply and combine colour theory and design processes to produce samples .

2.1 Select materials , tools and equipment  required for the production of samples  which integrate colour theory and design processes according to the needs of the brief .

2.2 Follow appropriate and safe procedures to apply instances of design process and colour theory.

2.3 Select, combine and explore the ways in which colour theory and design processes may be integrated.

2.4 Consider outcomes in relation to processes used and suitability for the brief.

2.5 Explore different approaches to satisfy the requirements of the brief.

2.6 Produce a range of samples which demonstrate how colour theory and design processes can be integrated in two and/or three dimensional space.

2.7 Present and store work in a format which takes account of the need for professional presentation and potential need for the samples in future work.

Required Skills and Knowledge

Required Skills and knowledge 

This section describes the skills and knowledge required for this unit.

Required skills :

  • literacy skills sufficient to interpret a brief
  • numeracy skills sufficient to calculate quantities and determine layout and construction issues.

Required knowledge :

  • general knowledge of the role and nature of a brief within the design process, including different types of brief and how designers use them
  • awareness of the notion of individual interpretation and choice within the design process, and the potential limitations of theory
  • ways in which colour theory and design processes can be explored and combined to meet the needs of a brief
  • knowledge about the materials, tools and equipment required for the production of samples which integrate colour theory and design processes
  • knowledge about how other artists and designers have applied colour theory and design processes
  • work space organisation and maintenance including environmental and safety issues
  • copyright, moral rights and intellectual property issues and legislation and their impact on aspects of design.

Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

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

The following evidence is critical to the judgement of competence in this unit:

  • production of samples which integrate colour theory and design processes in accordance with the requirements of the brief
  • fundamental understanding of the ways in which colour theory and design processes may be combined in the production of design or art work.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

The assessment context must provide for:

  • project or work activities that allow the candidate to access and apply colour theory and design processes to a specific context.

Method of assessment 

Assessment may incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of essential underpinning knowledge, and might include:

  • direct observation of the production of samples
  • questioning and discussion
  • review of portfolios of evidence
  • third party workplace reports of performance by the candidate.

Assessment methods should closely reflect workplace demands (e.g. literacy) and the needs of particular groups (e.g. people with disabilities, and people who may have literacy or numeracy difficulties such as speakers of languages other than English, remote communities and those with interrupted schooling).

Assessment of this unit requires access to the materials resources and equipment needed to produce samples using integrated colour theory and design processes in two and/or 3D space.

Range Statement

RANGE STATEMENT 

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised  wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.

Sources of information  on colour theory and design processes may include:

  • art and design work
  • books and magazines
  • manufactured structures
  • natural and architectural forms
  • optics
  • personal observation

  • scientific texts
  • software programs.

Materials  may include:

  • a range of drawing media and implements
  • a range of papers and cardboard
  • clays and plaster
  • fibre, tape, string
  • glues
  • light
  • nails, screws, wire
  • paints and inks
  • paper pulp
  • wood, metal fabric, plastic.

Tools and equipment  may include:

  • air guns and brushes
  • brushes
  • clamps
  • computer, scanner, relevant software programs
  • cutting blades
  • hammer, saw, pliers
  • light sources
  • pens and nibs
  • receptacles
  • rulers
  • scissors
  • spatulas
  • sponges.

Samples  may be exercises in response to a brief and may involve consideration of:

  • balance
  • contrast
  • direction
  • emotional and cultural aspects of colour and design
  • harmonies and discords
  • illusion
  • mass
  • natural and artificial light
  • negative and positive form and space
