Drawing and Illustration is intended to activate a drawing creation space directed to the illustration. Its objectives are:
1- Know the different definitions of illustration and their fields of action;
2 - Explore different media, media and techniques according to the issues of narrative, character and environments;
3 - To creatively approach and criticize the different exercises according to the target public and means of dissemination;
4- Work the different projects according to the specific objectives of the exercises. That is: exploration of drawing and word, drawing and image, drawing and sound, bearing in mind the exploratory diversification of materials and means of achievement.
5- To extend the autonomy, exploration capacity and visual concreteness inherent to the broad field of the illustration.
Learning outcomes and competences
Students should be able to create narratives, characters and atmospheres according to the purpose and function of the project. In the same way they must demonstrate technical skills and creative ability.
Pre-requirements (prior knowledge) and co-requirements (common knowledge)
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.
