As speaking about the importance of holding the training course for students, the Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Dr. Safwat Ibrahim Pasha, said: “The current course is an important step for students wishing to register as it seeks to teach them the methods of free drawing smoothly and flexibly, and train them to draw shapes of geometric volumes from different angles and use shadow and light, in order to show the architectural depth.
Dr. Safwat Ibrahim Pasha also stressed the scientific and cognitive necessity of the training course as “it sheds light on the concept of the architectural perspective as it depicts the external mass in its three dimensions, which helps students to visualize the architectural space in the future, especially since they do not have a previous knowledge background, these scientific materials presented to them. They will hone their drawing skills as a basic subject in the early years and a basis for the rest of the scientific and practical subjects.”
