Interior designers use drawing to conceptualize and represent spatial ideas. This course teaches students the mechanics of visual representation, the use of drawing and two-dimensional media to observe, document, and reimagine interior spaces. You learn to read and to draw plans, sections, and elevations as well as one-, two-, and three-point perspectives. You learn to observe space, material, light, and shadow as they exist in the built interior and develop techniques for representing these qualities in two-dimensional drawings. We explore a variety of media, including graphite, pen, colored pencils, and markers, with the intention of visually representing design concepts and ideas through the use of freehand drawing. Counts as a required course toward the certificate in Interior Design or as a full elective toward the certificates in Fashion Design and Fine Arts.
