The objectives will be categorized into 3 groups. Technical Drawing: • Identify and define the terms used to describe ways a building/interior can be viewed in 2 and 3 Dimensions. For example: Plan, Section, Elevation, Axonometric, Isometric and Perspective. The student will be able to explain how different drawing types and media are used to communicate ideas and provide construction information. • Students will demonstrate aptitude by applying industry standard drawing conventions (line weights, lettering, dimensioning, etc.) to individual work. • The student will be able to graphically document an existing space. Using conventional processes the student will conduct accurate field surveys. A basic understanding of millwork construction and investigative techniques will allow the student to graphically describe how cabinetry is assembled. Design Drawings: • Diagramming is an important tool when communicating graphically. Students will learn multiple ways to prepare drawings that communicate spatial relationships and, processes, Discovery of new techniques will allow the student to, analyze, evaluate and design diagrams that are applicable to their own ideas and presentations. • At the end of this course the student will be able to use sketching in a variety of ways to communicate ideas about space. This tool will be used to interpret, analyze and compare the works of others as well as their own. • Students will be able to prepare a formal graphic presentation illustrating an original idea in a clear and concise manner. Students will gain experience with oral presentation skills and public speaking Composition, Theory, and Craft: • Students will learn various approaches to the study of composition and ways it is applied, analyzed, created and/or interpreted throughout the design profession. • Theory and Architectural history will be studied in this course. The student will be able to formulate an original statement about an individual or a specific project and present it in an appropriate and complimentary manner. Students will learn the “language” of design, become objective and critical about design. • Craft refers to the physical quality of work. Students will develop a rigor in their craft consistent with that of all accredited Interior Design programs. Techniques will be presented and students will demonstrate their ability to present work of the highest quality.
