Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs T. Tippett

 

This is a creative design course. It is run in the Graphics room. 

In this course students will work on a product design project. (As the subject begins to specialise at Level 2 students will be able to move into product or spatial design).

Students will learn to:

  1. Use the design process to solve a design brief
  2. Develop their freehand sketching skills
  3. Develop their rendering skills
  4. Extend their use of design language to annotate and evaluate their own design ideas
  5. Use modelling techniques to generate and explore design ideas
  6. Communicate their ideas to others

This course is for students that like to be creative, to draw and to use their imaginations.
