Drawing I/II

Drawing I/II
TOYD220/221

Drawing I - The purpose of this class is for students to become fully articulate in a new drawing language called Visual Communication. To communicate effectively, a designer needs to have at their disposal a broad range of drawing skills. Students spend the semester becoming familiar with the principles of perspective and more importantly, they learn the useful particulars and shortcuts pertaining to sketching.

Drawing II - This second semester course is an introduction to the theory and practice of sketching, drawing, and rendering techniques as applied to toy product. Focus is on rapid visual sketching as well as marker rendering, which enable the designer to convey information about surface characteristics such as color, texture, and material.
Prerequisite: TOYD 220 Drawing l.
