Abstract: This research aims to identify formalistic aspects (design elements and principals) generally incorporated in school curriculum and the Faculty of Art & Design curriculum in creating drawings. Formalistic aspects present in drawings will be contrasted against each other via a special test conducted to selected respondents of two different phases – prior and after university enrollment, which involved of 105 respondents. They were Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) candidates that have undergone interview test prior to the Faculty of Art & Design of Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Kelantan Branch September intake. During the second phase which was done after university enrollment, the same respondents were recruited to participate in the evaluation of their drawing skill. Currently, all respondents are at their second (02) semester in four programs offered at UiTM. Based on the analysis done to drawings created in the First Phase (before) and the Second Phase (after) university enrollment, several discoveries were made pertaining to the incorporation of formalistic aspects in drawing creation. From the results, several suggestions were presented. It is hoped that this work will lead to the improvement of the current high school curriculum in general and the curriculum of the Faculty of Art & Design, in particular, in order to ensure that art is elevated to a higher level in the face of future challenges.
