The course provides students with skills in free form and technical drawing, architectural conventions and composition, digital and analogue model making as well as digital rendering and image manipulation. The course aims to equip students with a range of technical skills and builds on students’ strengths and interests; allowing them to develop a unique style of communicating. At the completion of this course students will have developed a range of analogue and digital skills for communicating concepts and designs.
