This subject aims to translate critical observations of the world into visual and spatial language through engagement of your eyes, your hands and your mind. Focus will be on drawing as a tool for creative action, an aid to unlock your creative potential and make impact with fundamental design and creative strategies. Fundamental design strategies and drawing skills will be developed through a series of technical drawing exercises and assignments. Using drawing as a tool for communication, students will be exposed to a range of methods of graphic presentation, through diagrams, storyboards, vignettes, tone and shadow, orthographic conventions, life drawing and iterative sketching. Students will also practice the broader communication skills involved in organising and making presentations-graphic presentation in the form of a portfolio and verbal presentation in the form of in-class exercises. In addition, students will also be introduced to the relationship between the architect/designer and the ubiquitous sketchbook.
