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.
Processes, objects and purposes of the Drawing;
Drawing as a unit configuration perceptual;
Modes of representation (mimesis of the imagination);
Time in the design;
Body, gesture, space;
Elements (space, shape, material, structure, shape, type, composition, proportion, space, light, color, texture).

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria
The teaching activities take place at two parallel levels: a critical exposition of programmatic contents, along with the development of practical work units that call and contextualize them. In this sense, four work units are programmed:
1. Organic and artificial objects;
2. Interior and exterior spaces;
3. Recognition of a course;
4. Moving picture.
These works are framed in terms of their general and specific objectives, methods, means and techniques. They are mostly developed in the classroom, although they comprise preparation and external research activities.
In a discipline of this kind, combining experience, theory and practice, it is essential to evaluate the degree and regularity of attendance, the quality of the fulfillment of the curricular obligations and the progression during the semester, resulting in the final evaluation of the weighting of these factors.
