Designed Coursework for graduate programs in Visual Communication -
A 60 page book documents the complete coursework done with students at various Design Institutes in the country. Given below is a sample of the course abstract on Visualization Drawing, one of the
courses in this book.

Visualization Drawing - A primer for students who want to learn sketching 3 dimensional
objects. With the increase in number of computer modeling solutions, the reason to learn sketching
as a skill leads to a debate between novice learners and traditional instructors; whether this skill is necessary to acquire. The term sketching in the course refers to the activity of drawing (representing)
three dimensional objects located centrally, surrounded by students along the periphery of a circle.
The art of sketching in design schools is currently acquired through perseverance and can be considered liberal to invite a methodical approach. Growth of impatience and the need for instant results in novices are in contrast with respect to the representation skills which are generally achieved by extensive practice and patience. Given the context, this course is a collection of students work conducted over two years of teaching drawing of three dimensional objects at the
Department of Design, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Assam, India.

A new book in Marathi will be soon available for download -

The idea was to share this work with students who are not conversant with the English language.
If some student in a remote place is interested and is keen to know what is happening at other
Design colleges in his own country he should get his copy. :) Happy Reading. Coming soon!
