VCV have been busy producing a technical drawing resource that covers paraline and perspective drawing, orthogonal drawing and dimensioning and package net drawing.
The resource includes a series of A3 landscape layout pages with exercises, information and technical drawing design briefs.
The resource targets Year 7 - 10 Design students and aims to introduce students to technical drawing using original imagery, creative design briefs and a series of beginner to intermediate exercise.
There is a glossary of terms and a series of tests at the end of the resource.
The applications have opened for Top Arts, Top Designs and Top Screen for the Season of Excellence. The application forms are available on the VCAA webpage under the Season of Excellence. VCAA would like to to encourage as many schools in all sectors to apply.
