Course detail

Drawing of Product

FSI-YKVAcad. year: 2017/2018

The course is focused on drawing objects in a perspective view. Managing this type of artwork is necessary for the first phase of the work of industrial designer. The work proceeds from an elementary sketch depicting the basic structure to a definitive representation of the product model. The correct method of capturing reality lies in the reduction of the object to basic geometric shapes.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The subject allows students to work on their technique of drawing by representing real industrial products, which is essential for developing the ability to put down ideas on design in free-hand drawing.

Prerequisites

The course is a follow-up to fundamentals of drawing, geometric objects drawing and still-life drawing. Elementary knowledge of the perspective drawing /including shadows and lights/ is assumed as well as the ability of applying it to the construction of drawing and experience with the drawing of still-life composed of objects with the different characters, materials and surfaces in a perspective view according to a model.
