Course detail

Fundamentals of Drawing

FSI-YKAAcad. year: 2017/2018

This course provides students with the basic theoretical and practical knowledge that is necessary for drawing. It is concerned with drawing geometrical solids using a model.
The course is determined to students who will take talent exam on speciality "Industrial design". Its completion is a necessary condition for the following course "Geometric Objects Drawing" in the 2nd year of studies. At the end of the semester the selection process /talent exam/ is held for students who are interested in the speciality "Industrial design".

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students acquire the basic knowledge of drawing. Practise in geometry elements drawing represents the first step in mastering skills and acquiring of basic knowledge of a model drawing.

Prerequisites

Students are assumed to have basic knowledge from the high school without art orientation. The interest of students in the course together with the potential of the development in the selected branch is very important. The course is determined to students who will take talent exam on speciality "Industrial design".

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Creative work in ateliers.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Graded course-unit credit requirements: Attendance at exercises, meeting assigned projects deadlines.
Resulting evaluation consists of evaluations on tasks (drawings). In total it will be possible to aquire 100 points. Resulting classification will be defined by the ECTS scale.
The quality of the output and the attendance to the course will be taken in account when evaluating the talent examination to the Industrial Design in Machinery branch.

Language of instruction

Aims

The aim is to familiarize students with drawing such as the basic type of visualization. Practical exercises focus on the relationship between the paper, instrument, format and basic expressive tools of the drawing process. Focus is placed on the basics of perspective principles and their reflection in drawing.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Compulsory attendance at seminars. Education runs according to the week schedule. The way of compensation of missed seminars is specified by the tutor.
Absolving the course (Graded course-unit credit) is one of the requirements for acceptance to the Industrial Design in Machinery branch.
