Description

This subject is intended as a continuation of the skills acquired in Drawing Workshop I. It is a part of Communication, Expression and Documentation and it goes further into the conception of drawing as a medium and a essential tool that will accompany the students throughout their studies, but also as a habit and as a way of thinking. Drawing is the first stage of externalization, projection and formalization, and will be explored here as a tool to capture and organize thought and to project and articulate information in a way that is both comprehensible to one and to others.

Students will be presented with different approaches to the discipline that will be treated through specific practical exercises, aimed at exploring specific problems and experimenting with different tools, supports, materials, techniques and procedures. The proposals will be contextualized through historical and theoretical frameworks, which enable placing the drawing practice regarding its tradition and contemporary languages, with specific referents and the analysis of its different physical, aesthetic and cultural dimensions.
