TEACHING DRAWING: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY PEDAGOGICAL EXPERIENCE IN A GRAPHIC DESIGN COURSE

S. Jorge, S. Dias

IPCA (PORTUGAL)
Various authors have written about the importance of drawing in design methodology. Their general conclusion points drawing as an essential tool for design research, as it allows investigation of several alternative solutions in design process (Cross, 2007).
The recent profound changes in design nature (Norman, 2011), justify a discussion on the purpose of drawing in design courses. As a consequence of this new reality, the educational institutions face the challenge of the definition of their curricular structures and teaching methodologies. Among others, concepts such as collaboration and multidisciplinary design approaches have been discussed as strategies for design education (Heller and Talarico, 2011, pp. 82-85).

In this context, and using our teaching activity experience in Drawing and Design areas, the authors discuss:
- how can drawing methods be included in the current design teaching?
- can drawing be considered as an interdisciplinary approach?
- what contributions can these methodologies provide to the educational/learning process?

Based on these concerns, we developed an interdisciplinary project in the Graphic Design Course with two Curricular Units: Drawing and Aesthetic and Design Theory.
In this article the authors present the aims and process developed, and discuss the outcomes of this pedagogical experience.
