Three-dimensional mechanical drafting and free-hand sketching developed and applied as a tool in all phases of the creative design process; using line value, 2D and 3D representation of the built environment.
As a result of completing this course students will be able to:
Technical Drawing:
1. Identify and define the terms used to describe ways a building/interior can be viewed in Two Dimensions (2D) and Three Dimensions (3D). For example: Plan, Section, Elevation, Axonometric and Perspectives. Explain how different drawing types and media are used to communicate ideas and provide construction information.
2. Demonstrate aptitude by applying industry standard drawing conventions (line weights, lettering, dimensioning, etc.) to individual work.
3. Graphically document an existing space. Use conventional processes to conduct accurate field surveys. Describe how cabinetry and furniture is assembled.

Design Drawings:
4. Apply new drawing techniques that will allow students to, analyze, evaluate and design diagrams that are applicable to their own ideas and presentations.
5. Use sketching in a variety of ways to communicate ideas about space. Illustrate and compare the works of others as well as their own.
