Drawing is a form of visual art that requires a relationship on a surface to be expressed through lines or spots using a drawing tool such as wood, water, or oil, It should be noted that the fees vary from simple drawings, preparatory, and integrated, and in this article we will introduce you to one of the types of drawings is free drawing

Free drawing

Free drawing is one of the types of drawings in which a utility is used such as computer, protractor, caliper or ruler, pencils and charcoal. Free drawing is taught as a subject in engineering colleges, helping to provide skills, in the development of the ability to visualize geometric shapes in the vacuum, and to apply them in a quick and correct manner. It should be noted that these skills are necessary for interactions with professionals in the early stages of various engineering projects, as well as their importance in the initial stages prior to the use of computerized drawing techniques , The courses of free drawing deal with many basic issues, the most important of which are the methods of presentation such as the perspective, the econometric and the method, as well as the representation of the different materials: luster and chromium, in addition to the use of colors

Free drawing tools

Free drawing depends mainly on the terms of descriptive geometry, which deals with the study of the basic rules of engineering vacuum modeling in order to represent it in a clear and correct manner.

It must be noted that the architectural element consists of:

  • Point: The point is produced by an intersection between two lines; an intersection between a line and a level, or an intersection between three levels
  • Line: The line is formed by the intersection between two levels
  • Level: consists of assigning three non-aligned points at the same level

Steps to develop the skill of free drawing

  • Building visual skills by developing visual observation skill, viewing
  • Developing cognitive skill through the activation of the mind and the set of subjective elements seen by the person. Thus, the development of this skill is linked to the development of the culture, knowledge and science of the learners, in addition to being linked to the visual power of memory
  • Visual separation skills, through the division of visual patterns or relationships, as well as the separation of architectural or architectural vocabulary from the surrounding environment, in order to identify the individual characteristics of each of them, as well as by identifying the different relationships between all the different vocabulary and structures
  • Develop the visual communication skill by observing the work during drawing
  • The skill of visual analysis: by identifying the patterns and visual relationships in the built environment, it should be noted that in this step is linked memory and mental inventory
