Sketching And Drawing NCERT Class 12

Irrespective of one’s drawing aptitude, we all know it is an amusing and a rewarding activity. Drawing, however you know is an essential discipline in certain professions as well. In all fields of visual arts like design, architecture, media and fine arts there is this common assumption that before making anything it is first ‘drawn’ or ‘planned, refined and perfected at drawing’ that is, before it is made. It is true that all great minds in visual fields made drawing and have left behind the traces of their design process in the form of drawings. So what is drawing to these professions?
Drawing is a system of representing visual ideas and thoughts on a surface. Most commonly it is used as a means of depiciting three dimensional reality on a two dimensional surface using pencil, charcoal, crayon, pen, brush etc on a paper, cloth, wall etc. Drawing is also used as a tool for ‘visualisation’. In other words, visualisation means representation of one’s imagination for others. Where design ideas can be two dimensional or three dimensional. Drawing, in spite of being a two dimensional representation, can provide a convincing illusion of three dimensional environments.
In visual communication drawing is regarded as the most economical and efficient way to record, illustrate and express thoughts and ideas, where as even elaborate verbal explanations remain inadequate to do so. In graphic design images are intentionally arranged along the text so to put across complex information or a thought which the viewer receives as a meaning arising by connecting two. Words and images put together makes communication simpler, complete and effective. In present times photography has become alternative way of generating images in graphic compositions but drawing is still preferred in visualisation and considered ideal. Further, we will see some such virtues of drawing that being of practical use in the graphic profession and importantly, in sensitising our perception of a visual form and sensitising perception to become a sensitive and perceptive individual.
Other than its usefulness in design, from ancient times drawing is respected as an art form. Like poetry, music, dance, acting, storytelling etc., drawings also influence our emotions since it can extract and represent those subtle, seen and unseen gestures, expressions, through characteristic fluency and affective quality of line. Since kind of drawing is a form of personal expression it is indeed subjective and hence relative to the viewer’s participation too. Participation here means that in our imagination we are expected to participate in the process of its making while appreciating the work of drawing. In fine arts such subjectivity is appreciated as one’s unique style that is appropriate with the chosen subject and intent.
