This course provides students with a passion for automotive design with the necessary knowledge and skills to sketch amazing cars on Photoshop, along with engaging assignments.

Meetings are structured as immersive workshops with direct interaction between the participants and IED teacher, in line with IED’s “learning by doing” philosophy. The course covers some of the software skills that make up a car designer.

In a first phase the course introduces you to perspective drawing and basic shapes, and then moves on to complex forms. In the second phase you will concentrate on car sketching so you will be introduced to car segments and proportions while covering different front, side and rear view sketching methods.
