Course Objectives This course introduces basic drawing techniques and is designed to increase the students' observation skills and develop basic drawing skills. Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of both perceptual and conceptual drawings using freehand technical drawing as a method
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • To learn drawing skills both in real or imaginary situations with rendering techniques.
  • To accurately communicate the way objects and spaces look in two
  • To develop the ability to express design ideas through drawing.
  • To develop a basic vocabulary of drawing and some ability to speak about individual work.
  • To develop effective studio work habits (punctuality, time management, regular submission, coming equipped to class, appropriate studio behaviour, keeping the studio clean, working in groups).
Course Description The course introduces freehand drawing both in real or imaginary situations with rendering techniques that are used to accurately communicate the way objects and spaces look in three dimensional projections. Conceptual and presentational drawings and rendering in mixed media will be covered
