Overview

Introduction to rules-based drawing with software (Rhino3D and Adobe Illustrator) focusing on graphic compositions of points, lines, and curves. Exercises will introduce and utilize basic ordering systems, two-dimensional geometric operations, graphic compositional principles, and visual hierarchy and legibility with line weights, tone, and poché. Tangible outcomes from the assignments will include line and tone drawings, modulated field drawings, and graphic collage compositions.

Syllabus

Session 1: Line Drivers – Rules-Based Drawing With Line Weights 
A simple drawing exercise to introduce rules-based and algorithmic thinking. Student will experiment with simple geometric drawings and line weights.
Session 2: Ordering 2D Modules – Geometric Operations 
A drawing exercise that introduces ordering systems and basic geometric operations. Graphic compositional principles will also be introduced.
Session 3: Algorithmic Field Drawings 
A drawing exercise that introduces a more sophisticated field drawing type. These drawings begin a discussion about repetition, complexity, and larger, emergent effects.
Session 4: Digital Collage Compositions 
A drawing exercise that introduces collage and layering. Divergent drawing types can be combined to reinforce graphic composition principles.

Awesome course, the video explanations are clear and right to the point. 100% practical with drawing exercises from the very first session. I am an architect and I am learning new things with this course.
