Description: This course undertakes a study of classical systematic methods of drawing with the use of classical hand-held instruments. [So, NO electronic machines or computing devices for this study.] In particular, the general problem of depicting three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional plane will be tackled via various methodical schemes. Specifically, multi-view drawings, axonometric (e.g., isometric) projections, oblique projections, and systematic perspective (one point and multi-point) will be covered. Other likely topics include: various constructions with compass and straightedge, drawing approximate ellipses, drawing more general Ogee curves, shading and shadowing, developments of surfaces. Throughout the course, improving the fundamental skills of visualizing, and of thinking in three dimensions will remain unifying themes. Generally, the goal is to learn to construct, in methodical ways, drawings that are accurate, precise, neatly presented, and further that depict well real objects both small and large.
