FSI-YKSAcad. year: 2017/2018

Drawing of still life is an appropriate method to develop drawing skills. Students are encouraged to capture the combination of shapes, sizes, colors and materials, the overall composition in perspective according to the physical model.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The subject allows students to work on their technique of drawing by working on complex object compositions, following the knowledge of drawing single objects with the emphasis on the character of the whole from the view of space and material.

Prerequisites

Elementary knowledge of the perspective drawing is assumed as well as the experience with the drawing of still-life composed of basic geometrical elements with the uniform surface in a perspective view using a model with all types of shadows.

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.
If some of the projects are awarded less than half of the maximum pts., final evaluation of the course is "failed".
According to the article No. 13 of Study and Examination Rules of Brno University of Technology ECTS evaluation degree scale is used. . If some of the projects are awarded less than 50 pts., final evaluation of the course is "failed". The course is evaluated with the following grades: ECTS EVALUATION DEGREES / PTS. RATING / NUMERIC RATING: A / 100 - 90 / 1 / Excellent; B /89 - 80 / 1,5 / Very good; C / 79 - 70 / 2 / Good; D / 69 - 60 / Satisfactory; E / 59 - 50 / Sufficient; F / 49 - 0 / 4 / Failed.

Aims

The aim of the subject is detailed reflection of reality, focusing on the composition of objects, their mutual volumetric and proportional relationships. Emphasis is placed primarily on the right schematic drawing of the items, quality outlines and proportional relations of the items, followed by artistically sophisticated representation of materials, textures and core and cast shadows.

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.
