Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop drawings which represent and communicate the concept. This is a core unit which complements all the specialisation units. It is different from the drawing specialisation units which focus on drawing as an art form. This unit goes beyond the scope of CUVCOR07B Use drawing techniques to represent the object or idea and CUVCOR08B Produce drawings to represent and communicate the concept in terms of the complexity of skill requirement, use of techniques and sophistication of representation. This work would usually be carried out under supervision.

Drawing Techniques is a clustered unit and underpins many other specialisation units, which will allow us to assess your project work against several competencies.

This unit is delivered and assessed in conjunction with CUVCRS04B Produce technical drawings which focuses on the skills and knowledge required to develop and refine a range of techniques to produce technical drawings.

The above units support LMFID4005A Research and recommend soft furnishings for interiors. Drawings produced in Drawing Techniques are used in the presentation boards for Soft Furnishings.
