    Course Title:Freehand Sketching II
    Course Objective:The objectives of this course are to: • Improve students ability to draw using their hand and also enhance their graphic communication using different media; and • Prepare students for architectural graphics and design in higher levels.
    Course Synopsis:This course is mainly a practical oriented course. It is a continuation of ARC 103 -Freehand sketching, which is an introduction to freehand drawing. It provides a basis for which students can develop their graphic communication in architecture by expressing themselves using pencils and markers etc on paper or any other suitable media. It takes a step further by introducing the students to quick sketches, shades and shadows and different rendering techniques including water colour and other wet media. As a practical course, the focus is to impart useful skills on the students in order to enhance their drawing abilities using freehand techniques (i.e without the aid of mechanical drawing instruments) and prepare them for architectural design-a studio base course in higher levels. Topics to be covered include quick sketches, shapes and forms, landscape studies and figure drawings, use of shades, shadows and colours for rendering, detailed/complex sketches and colourful image transfer among others.
