Learning outcomes General objective:
This UC aims to confer a set of skills relevant to the process, phenomenological and conceptual understanding of the Drawing, through its practical exercise.
It also aims to raise students' awareness about the necessary development of perception, capacity for representation, expression and aesthetic sensibility.

At the end of this UC the student should be able to:
- Analyze the morphological characteristics of a given object and represent them graphically;
- Represent objects with different means of expression, supports, scales and purposes;
- Observe a given space and represent it using the geometric principles of the linear conic perspective;
- Properly apply the lexicon and grammar of the Drawing, in particular the structure, proportion, texture, shaping, shading and composition;
- Identify poetics appropriate to each request;
- Understand and manipulate the temporal parameter;
- Recognize some key authors and artists.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The teaching activities take place on two parallel levels: critical exposition of syllabus contents, along with the development of practical work units that convene and contextualize them. In this sense, four work units are scheduled:
1. Organic and artificial objects;
2. Indoor and outdoor spaces;
3. Recognition of a route;
4. Figure in motion.
These works are framed with regard to their general and specific objectives, methods, means and techniques. They are mostly developed in the classroom, although they include preparation activities and external research.
Assessment is of a formative nature. It is based on the exposition and comment of the works before the class, in order to assess the quality of the answer. Regular attendance and other curricular obligations are also considered. The final classification results from the weighted average of the previous evaluations (80%), registered progression (10%) and attendance (10%).
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
