Drawing for Photography and New Media

Teaching the discipline of drawing at the Department of Photography and New Media is designed in two lines. The first one is based on familiarization and mastering of the issue of reproduction of space, figure and composition. The second one consists of independent solutions of drawing projects in conjunction with the particular field of study. Approach to individual undergraduates at various studios is differentiated by specific assignments related to their professional direction. The concept comes out from requirements on use of drawing in the given field of study and its utilisation at presentations and student projects in practice.
