DESN 120 Drawing As Thinking

3 credits 90.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

Drawing is the backbone of all forms of design and visual communication of ideas. Students will explore drawing that persuasively communicates ideas and information and learn how to apply design methodologies and strategies to visual problem solving. Through research, ideation techniques and thinking exercises, students will utilize the act of drawing as an iterative process of discovery. Projects expose students to a wide range of techniques and media experiences including digital drawing. Students will keep a sketchbook to document visual explorations and thoughts outside the classroom. Issues covered and developed in this course are the basis for critical thinking in all future design courses.
