This unit is an introduction to freehand and measured drawing techniques and drawing practice. Studio based exercises will include two and three dimensional drawing conventions, and their types and uses in design. Studio exercises begin with line drawing and increase in complexity to include light, shade and texture. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional design drawing conventions are introduced using a variety of techniques to develop skills in design representation. Students develop skills in drawing for design ideation, design discussion, design sketching and measured drawings.
