OverviewThis drawing course aims to introduce techniques and disciplines to enhance creativity rather than conformity and is divided into freehand, geometric drawing and digital drawing. The freehand drawing tutorials address drawing elements such as line, tone, mass, texture, measure and proportion, in wet and dry media. The geometric drawing tutorials address the elements of planar geometry as well as the projections and conventions useful to designers. The digital drawing, while introducing digital 2 & 3D visualisation in terms of view studies, material studies and lighting studies, reiterate the visual and graphic understanding developed through the course.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
