Design Drawing for Makers JANUARY 2014
Monday, January 6, 2014 at 7:30 PM - Monday, January 27, 2014 at 9:30 PM (EST)
Drawing is the foundation of many design principles -- it can help you to simplify complex spatial problems by putting them to paper, or iterate a better form factor for a new product. In this four-week course we will demystify drawing and break it down into its essential components to give students the skills to clearly communicate their 3D concepts in a 2D format.
Students will develop the following skills and understand the following concepts:
- Thumbnail Sketching
- Line Drawing
- Color and Composition
No experience necessary. Students must be at least 18 years old.
- Moleskine Sketchbook
- Black Pen
- Black Marker
- White Pen
- White Pencil 2B
- Drawing Pencil 2B
- Mechanical Pencil 2B Lead
- Light Gray Marker
- Dark Gray Marker
- Blue Pen
What to Bring:
Students should bring any drawing materials they particularly like to use.
