E-courses MākZ2036: Drawing II
Course annotation The aim of the course is to provide students with opportunities to develop basic understanding of drawing. Tasks of the course are to create preconditions for the fundamentals of academic drawing, as well as regularity in image construction; to foster students’ skills in linear and tonal drawing of involved still-life, plaster cast pieces, and acquisition of parts of a human face. Students will gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of techniques used in drawings; will develop practical skills through short- term and long-term exercises.
Results Students will develop an understanding of the structure of drawing, advance knowledge of drawing techniques and means of expression. Students will be able to analyze image using spatial design principles and depict shapes and forms of an object by means of lines and tone. Drawing experience is essential in the designer’s work, both portraying objects in environment, and visualizing design projects.
