Department: BSc Architecture
Module Description: This module introduces and tends to equip (via numerous assignments) students with the essential skills needed for freehand drawing (i.e. drawing done by hand without the use of tools or aids such as templates, stencils, tracing, etc.). It emphasises on the ability to have good command on the use of hand, improvement in observation skills which helps train the eye for better accuracy in estimating lengths and foreshortenings, and ability to concentrate to achieve better accuracy.
