Materials supplied

Materials required for the course will be provided. All relevant course notes are supplied with comprehensive instructions and exercises.

Materials to bring

A pencil, eraser, white-out pen, fine and medium soft pointed brushes, black Fine liner-type pen, a 30-40 cm ruler, glue-stick and a pair of scissors and a fine cutting knife.

Suited to

Students are expected to have some familiarity with a range of manual art creation techniques and have an understanding of the design process. Previous participation in Level 1 is ideal but not essential. This course is for current VCE students in year 11 and 12 or mature age participants who are interested in this area of design or for those wishing to extend their folio of work through a range of briefs and techniques.

Additional notes

Participation has no influence on the selection of students into RMIT award programs. Short Course activities may include opportunity to prepare for a folio, experience of the studio environment, provide an industry and study overview, and assistance with study options.


Upon completion of this course, students will have had the opportunity to attempt a number of intermediate projects. Students would have gained some skills to independently continue the design process to achieve new and individual outcomes.

Upon finishing the course you will receive a RMIT Certificate of Completion. You can use this as a record to demonstrate the outcomes covered in the course.
