Working method


Pre-requirements (prior knowledge) and co-requirements (common knowledge)

Drawing II



The illustration acquires a language of its own where sometimes support and context give rise to the construction of narratives.

The word, sound, book, periodical publication, poster or advertising enhance the development of images that aid and complement in the interpretation of texts and narratives as well as vehicles of experimentation and construction of autonomous imaginaries.

From a specific set of exercises, where the specific objectives, themes, methodologies, materials, supports and techniques are listed, we will work on the visual narrative, metaphor, character and self-representation according to the context and means of dissemination.
