A synthesis of perception theory and communication theory is presented as the basis for a new teaching programme of drawing for first–year fine art undergraduates. The domain of drawing is mapped as a matrix of systems of choices available to the drawer in order to realise the functions of drawing within a social context. It is argued that an increased awareness of this domain may empower students’ practice.
