In a similar vein to the last question, is it ok to translate this literally as "Volume and Plastic Graphic Expression Techniques" or is there a more idiomatic way of expressing this.

Thanks once again in advance.

techniques of two- and three-dimensional representation

Gráfico obviously refers to paintings, drawings, prints etc - in other words, two-dimensional art.

In art, "plastic" means "three-dimensional". It includes things like sculpture and installation, and "volumen" is another way of saying this.
