The Architectural Drawing 1 course is designed for international students of various degree programmes and different levels of drawing skills. It teaches students to correctly perceive and "see" shapes and space in proportional relationships, spatial context, scale and visual perspective. The models are first assemblages of geometric objects, then supplemented with a chair and a naturalistic figure. The participant of the course learns to lay out and optimally place the drawing in the format. They learn to build the resulting drawing by consciously using the principles of visual perspective. Using the horizon line and vanishing points and by using the technique of viewing, ?visioning? method, which is carried out by measuring the proportions of object using a pencil or a stick.
Drawing themes change throughout the semester and graduate in difficulty. from still life drawings of geometric shapes, trees, and human figures to drawings of interiors and street-level cityscapes. A coherent progression aids in the advancement of pencil handling while profiling personal handwriting. The aim is to develop spatial vision and to acquire the skill in drawing and sketching that is indispensable as a means of communication in the production of architectural designs. Constant attention is paid to aspects of shape and mass in space, the expression of light and shadow, plasticity, structure and the differentiation of materials.
