Related Studies explores a range of practical approaches to drawing and printmaking, and analyses syntactical structures of image processing, including the broader issues of how images operate within specific contexts, both historical and contemporary. Students are also encouraged to investigate drawing and printmedia through experimentation around relationships between drawing, printmaking, and other studio based visual art practices.
