Design Basics : Drawing (DSN103/DSN103n)

In studio environment the course introduce the student to the translation of perception through delineation, drawing, and other descriptive media. Emphasis of the course in on the development of students' motor control by means of freehand and mechanical drawing and by development of analytical and objective observation from life and three-dimensional objects.


Drawing Studio emphasizes the perceptual and analytical methods of drawing that support broader art and design processes throughout the student’s course of study. The perceptual component develops eye, mind, and hand coordination through the objective observation of the human figure, still life, and space. The role of the analytical component is to develop an understanding of methods, concepts, and drawing systems, such as anatomical, orthographic, praline, and perspective drawing.
