On Tuesday we had our second Technical Drawing class and this week we looked at elevations, which is a flat view of a wall with no perspective.
We began with a task that involved drawing tetris blocks from many different angles. We drew it from above in plan form, as we had learnt to do last week, and also from the front and side.
Then we had to apply that skill to drawing an elevation of a room:
The room we had to draw contained a table and 8 chairs as well as a window. To determine the height of the chairs and table we measured the tables and chairs from in the studio to use a guideline. The elevation was drawn with a scale of 1:50.
Finally we had to apply all our knowledge to drawing an elevation of a wall in the studio. We had to do a site survey of the wall chosen and then draw out a rough sketch to jot down the measurements.
This task took the longest but I enjoyed building up the detail onto my elevation. For our self directed work we have to produce elevations of the walls in our bedrooms, which I think is going to take me quite a long time!
