CONSTRUCTING POLYGONS AND FLAT FIGURES -Plane geometry and polygonal shapes: Two dimensional basic geometrical tools, elements, concepts and constructions. Point, lines, rays, segments, adding and subtracting segments, drawing parallel and perpendicular lines, perpendicular bisector, angles, angle bisector, regular polygons, inscribed polygons and star polygons, triangles, quadrilaterals, the circle, circumference and its elements. - Drawing decorative figures with parallel and perpendicular lines using the triangular set squares. - Relationship between shapes and proportion, tales theorem, how to divide a line segment in equal parts. - Equality, similarity, and symmetry. Constructing similar figures, symmetrical figures and equal shapes. DOTS, LINES AND THE TEXTURES - The dot as an element of composition. Expressiveness. - Horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines, suggesting forms and expressiveness. - Types of textures, natural, artificial, visual and tactile. How to create them and use them artistically. COLOUR - The origin of colour. (Light waves, absorption and reflection of light) - Additive colour system (using lights) : Primary, secondary colours. - Subtracting colour system (using pigments): Primary, secondary colours. - Contrast and analogous Harmonies. - The colour wheel. - Complementary colours (colour contrast) - Colour palettes (warm and cool colour ) - Characteristics of colour, Hue, Value, Chroma. SPACE AND VOLUME - Visual perception. Three- dimensionality - Relations of proximity and distance between shapes and figures. - Organizing forms in the space. - Visual perception form different points of view (orthographical drawing). Standard views, top vies, side view and front view. SYSTEMS OF REPRESENTATION - Dihedral system (orthographical views). - AXONOMETRIC: Isometric and oblique drawing. - Central perspective: One point perspective.
