Course abstract

Study course deepens of studies familiarises with the rules of perspective, its application in fine arts, drawing of simple and more complex object and different techniques. It develops imagination creative thinking in space. The man’s visual aspect, natures in large dimension (landscape) and in miniature have been studied.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

Knowledge: At the end of the course the student knows the theory of drawing composition, construction, perspective and volume formation, understands their interrelations and application, drawing settings that consist of several subjects. Gains knowledge of different materials and textures, details of gypsum architecture, different natural forms, sketching of a human figure. Gains knowledge of different drawing techniques. Laboratory works are evaluated.
Skills: Is able to construct and draw more complex spatial settings from different angles with different surface textures, apply different drawing techniques and their synthesis, depicting objects, plaster architectural details, natural elements, building fragments and environmental objects. Laboratory works are evaluated.

Competences: Students are able to creatively use knowledge, skills and methodological abilities in professional activity and development. Laboratory works are evaluated.

Part time extramural studies:

All topics specified for full time studies are accomplished, but the number of contact hours is one half of the number specified in the calendar

Requirements for awarding credit points

Performing laboratory work (drawings) according to the theme, increasing the complexity of the installation. Examination, evaluation and analysis of works (drawings) at the end of the semester, test with a mark.

Description of the organization and tasks of students’ independent work

Drawings in specific techniques are made according to the topics, observing the conditions of perspective, construction, volume formation and work design. If necessary, the work started in the lesson is completed independently. Tasks of laboratory work and their degree of complexity may vary according to the level of preparation.

Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

Evaluation is performed throughout the course with the final evaluation view. Evaluates the composition of drawings, proportions, lights, spatiality, individual growth. Evaluates the representation of knowledge, skills and competencies in drawings that are performed in laboratory work.
The evaluation of the study course depends on the cumulative evaluation of the laboratory work of the study course.
Laboratory works are evaluated in accordance with the established evaluation procedures and criteria.

Laboratory works (drawings) are evaluated according to the criteria:
1. compliance with the laws of object construction and perspective 2 points;
2. position on the page 1 point;
3. Light/ shadow ratio and form 2 points;
4. tonal ratio 2 points;
Strait 5 1 point;
6. work culture 1 point;
7. growth1 point.
When evaluating creativity in development work, the creativity factor is evaluated.
