Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1. Illustrate, in pencil, various materials, textures and finishes used in interior design.
2. Apply the principles of light, shade and shadow to perspective drawings of interior spaces and objects.
3. Explain the uses of perspective drawings and renderings in the practice of interior design.

Objectives: Untitled document
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Draw a simple one and two-point perspective of an interior space.
2. Draw an oblique axonometric view of an interior space with furniture.
3. Draw simple perspective sketches of furniture and decorative accessories.
4. Illustrate a 1/4-inch scale floor plan and elevation of a simple interior with furniture and
    accessories, rendered in pencil.
5. Construct a mechanically scaled one-point and two-point perspective drawing of a simple
    form from plans and elevations.
6. Apply color markers and color pencils to a black and white illustration for dramatic effect and
    to communicate a design idea.
