Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to read, understand, rethink and visually convey spatial facts. They have cognitive and manual drawing skills to represent real and imaginary spaces and can communicate their ideas visually.

Here you will develop central basic skills for subsequent courses and for the practice of architectural planning:

Observation: You will discover the properties of objects, light and space by recording observations precisely. You will experience and reflect on dimensional and proportional relationships. You will also receive practical tips.
Presentation: You will overcome problems and typical errors in spatial imaging and make good decisions for effective representation. You master the composition of spatial images by consciously dealing with the detail of the image. To do this, you use graphic design tools in a targeted manner and select suitable media. Rooms, objects and people are presented by you in a powerful visual statement.
Think spatially: You train the ability to think three-dimensionally in space, learn to put your thoughts on paper or in another suitable medium and to develop further there as well.
Implementing ideas: Finally, you will sketch your own concepts, develop them spatially and finish them...

Subject of course

Topics:

Elements of the image: image format, line, area, tonal value, color, position, dimensions, proportions in the image, etc.
Properties of the image: laws of perspective, atmosphere, etc.
Properties in space: spatial structure, dimensions/proportions, light/shadow, surface, etc.
Analog media and techniques: Hand drawing, photography, collage, poster, etc.
Artistic and aesthetic qualities

Learning content of the exercises on site and online (with compulsory attendance):

Spatial drawing and presentation: Observation study of spatial facts and their perspective appearance, proportions, proportions, light and shadow effects, colours and surface structures, etc.
Nude figure drawing: Observation study of the human body and its relation to the surrounding space.
Project work: Here you develop a spatial vision on a given theme. All the exercise units of the semester lead to a pictorial freehand representation that is to be worked out independently and carefully.

Learning contents of the exercises, which are to be compiled independently (self-study):

Deepening exercises: Weekly tasks on topics of perspective freehand presentation (a detailed online tutorial and the weekly tutorial hours provide corresponding assistance).
Project work: The finishing of the project work is to be worked out automatically on the basis of the preliminary work developed in the exercise units.
Sketchbook: This proof of drawing outside the course should be easy for architecture students to provide: they will at least also draw in other subjects. As a future designer, you always have to draw! In the context of the "sketchbook", the reception of the lecture series should also be proven (suitable transcripts).

Teaching methods

Methodical course elements (parallel to each other or building on each other):

Online lecture: Here you will be introduced to the basics, techniques and insights of artistic practice and you will acquire important basic knowledge for working independently during the exercise units. Student works from previous years give you orientation.
The weekly lecture units are closely coordinated with the practice and form an integral part of the course.
Practice groups: Here you practice the contents presented in the lecture with personal supervision on site in the drawing room.
Advanced exercises: According to specific information, these homework exercises are to be implemented and uploaded independently on a weekly basis. What is trained here also serves to prepare the next supervised exercise (see above: "Practice groups")
Online tutorial: As an aid for self-study, the basics of perspective representation are extensively explained online and presented step by step in a comprehensible way.
Sketchbook: This accompanies the whole learning process of ZVS1. During this time you should reach for the pencil as often as possible and continuously improve your skills.

Mode of examination

Immanent

Additional information

Non regular students and ERASMUS students can not be accepted! Please see alternativly: LVA-Nr. 264.124, LVA-Nr. 264.101, LVA-Nr. 264.122. Please contact the lecturerers for preconditions.

With the exception of the introduction, instead of live lectures, the recordings of the previous winter semester must be "consumed". They are a mandatory part of the semester program and are meaningfully assigned to the exercises.

A continuous participation in the lecture and courses is a precondition for a positive examination.

Examination modalities

The regular and continuous presence at the drawing exercises on site and working at home is a prerequisite for a positive assessment! The presence is recorded by presence lists and marking on the drawing sheets (stamp and/or teacher's signature) prepared during the training unit.

All work of the semester is used for the assessment: drawings from the weekly supervised exercises and homework (complete!), if necessary nude figure drawings and final project work with it's preliminary studies. Lecture transcription and sketchbook are not provided with a grade, but must be meaningfully available.

The following qualities are assessed:

Observation: Sensitivity, accuracy and relevance of reproduction
Graphic of the illustration: Conscious handling of Lines and areas, light/shadows, colours, atmosphere, surface effects etc.
Techniques and media: suitable choice, effectiveness and craftsmanship quality
Perspective: should be at least plausible.
Picture composition: Conscious handling of the division of the picture surface, quality of the result.
Creativity, originality and vitality in the implementation of your own ideas
Continuous development process of a concept, step by step, in many variants

For a positive final grade, all partial performances must be completed positively. If the mark is negative, the whole semester must be repeated. In the event of a negative assessment of the project work or the consolidation exercises, this partial performance can only be completed again with the agreement and approval of the supervisor by the beginning of the following semester (1 March) at the latest. After this deadline, all partial performances already assessed positively expire and the entire semester content (including all partial performances) must be repeated.
