This work presents the results of implementing a new drawing methodology in the subject 'Artistic Expression II', from Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Design and Product Development Engineering in Jaume I University, abandoning the learning of tridimensionality of objects through copying or tracing two-dimensional images. The new implemented learning strategies are centered on the one hand in allowing the students to know different instruments and techniques of sketching and, on the other hand, to practice in a more enriching way the direct and meticulous observation of everyday products. In this way, they can better understand the language of volume in space and thus be able to effectively represent the geometry of those new shapes they have in mind for product design. The paper describes the activities of the subject, the details of implemented methodology and discusses the scope of the results.
