The freehand drawing, intended as the first and most immediate tool for the representation of the idea and, therefore, the project itself, is increasingly acquiring importance even in the digital age.

More and more importance, in the digital age, is acquiring freehand drawing understood as the first and most immediate tool for the representation of the idea and, therefore, of the project itself. The course aims to provide the tools necessary for the control of freehand drawing. To achieve this, we need to sharpen our graphic skills through the knowledge of techniques combined with continuous experimentation, and to develop a strong capacity to observe reality, starting from the recall of the principles of descriptive geometry seen as a founding tool for all the techniques of representation used in design.

Lessons will be held one or two days a week with part-time (3h per day from 4,30PM to 7,30PM).

Detailed information available in the course schedule.

Training objectives

The course aims to provide students with a conscious mastery of projective techniques (orthogonal projections, axonometric and perspective) together with knowledge of the principles of representation by analogy of form and graphic techniques for the realization of sketches and freehand drawings, through laboratory activities and exercises aimed at the representation of real objects.

Didactic Modules

Educational content:

  • The basics of descriptive geometry – orthogonal projection, axonometry and perspective
  • Observation of reality
  • The use of the tool: the hand
  • Freehand drawing tools
  • Drawing elementary forms
  • Graphic synthesis: transforming complex objects into real shapes
  • The control of form – intuitive perspective
  • Light and shadows
  • Using colours

Title Released

At the end of the course a certificate of attendance at the Sketching for industrial design course and an Open Badge will be issued by

Employment Opportunities

At the end of the course the students will have improved their ability to represent and present design ideas in the field of industrial product design, using freehand drawing techniques.



The course is aimed at graduates, students and professionals of design disciplines.
