Drawing by hand is the quickest and cheapest way of conveying an idea on paper. A draft becomes, at the same time, a synthesis of the idea and/or a principle capable of generating the idea. In this course you will have the opportunity to learn through practical exercises, some of them carried out outside the school premises: you will have to draw urban sketches meant to improve your observation skills, capturing by means of a drawing some of the city’s spaces and buildings. Attending this course provides moments of learning that will be both pleasant and exciting, since the techniques are conveyed by means of practical exercises adapted to each theme.
All those that intend to learn and train the development of their drawing strokes, of their ability to represent and sketch, by means of free and nimble drawing, either architectural features or spaces. For students and professionals in the fields of architecture, interior design, furniture design, industrial design or illustration. The course is also meant for those who wish to learn drawing as a hobby or for whom this kind of drawing can be of use.
To be able to observe and represent space by means of free hand drawing

By the end of the course, participants will have some degree of competence and confidence to represent by means of a free drawing a space/environment and to explore a range of different themes on different materials.
