An introductory course into the use of computer in design, Introductory Digital two and three dimensional design exercises will be conducted. Attention will be paid to the concepts, techniques and approaches consistent with the medium. Basic design commands of current software homely to the three sections will be learnt at this stage. Conventional and non-conventional ideas are explored with projects produced by students.
This is a studio course in descriptive geometry, projections and the construction of shades and shadows including freehand drawings.
Importance and scope of agriculture. Land and its uses with particular reference to agriculture. Introductory crop production. Agricultural ecology of Nigeria. Agronomy of some arable crops. Land preparation. Harvesting, processing and reservation method. Farm tools and machinery including tractor driving and by-products. Basic farm management techniques. Fisheries and wildlife production. Forest products. General introduction to livestock production and health.
The objectives of this course are to: ï‚· General survey of West African Design; ï‚· The growth of Nigerian contemporary art, personalities, techniques, styles and their social and political significance; ï‚· The role of art and design in technology and in building; ï‚· The history of design in Nigeria will be studied, with examples cited from the different unit of the Industrial Design-Ceramics, Graphics, Textiles; ï‚· Application of design to everyday objects/live situation will be studied and discussed.
This course includes brief history of ceramics, clay weathering, types of clays, theory of glazes, ceramic equipment and their uses. Students will be taught design history as it relates to textile, graphics and ceramics. Students will carry out both group and individual projects that would express critical independent creative expression using unique media of expression in areas of bead, glass, stone, wood, metal and other found objects for assemblage.
This course involves the development of drawing skills through the study of nature still life and figure drawing. Students will be taught how to apply basic principles of draw in perspective, proportion and outdoor studies of figures in action. Exercises in the drawing of torso, burst, portrait and arms will be undertaken. This will help students to understand human anatomy in different postures. Likewise some arranged still-life drawing will made by students.
IDD207 teaches the elements, principles and techniques of mass production of designs or objects as the case may be. Students are to explore appropriate methods and materials for both manual and digital implementation of assignments in the replication of patterns, objects and illustrations and prints.
The course is mainly an advanced continuation of ARC 203 which is basically to develop the presentation of architectural drawings; introduction to the use of graphics in architecture; graphic thinking and building representation; representation of building elements and materials; their application in plans, elevations and sections; projection techniques for shades and shadow construction; complex 3-dimensional drawings of building exteriors and interiors; oblique, isometric, axonometric and perspectives. Emphasis is on presentation and advanced rendering techniques using wet media such as water or poster colour, ink, etc.
This will involve field planting. Each student will be allocated a field plot for the planting and management of an arable crop. Students will be exposed to practical work in animal production and health, fisheries and wildlife management, and crop and forestry nurseries.
The objectives of this course are to: â€¢ General survey of West African Design; â€¢ The growth of Nigerian contemporary art, personalities, techniques, styles and their social and political significance; â€¢ The role of art and design in technology and in building; â€¢ The history of design in Nigeria will be studied, with examples cited from the different unit of the Industrial Design-Ceramics, Graphics, Textiles; and â€¢ Application of design to everyday objects/live situation will be studied and discussed
This course is a continuation of the First Semester three dimensional design. Students will be taught design using different media of expression. Students will carry out individual projects that would involve critical independent creative expression using three dimensional forms from nature. These will also include creating kinetic sculptural forms using metals, wood, plastic and paper. Repromethod of three dimensional designs will be taught. Students will also be encouraged to generate compositions using thematic expressions that centre on current events and culture in Nigeria. Presentation technique and packaging of finished work will be emphasized as students are encouraged during critique sessions.
This course majorly involves drawings from sceneries and landscapes. Students will be exposed to drawings from different settings such as Motor Park, market place, village scene etc. This exercise will involve the use of different media such as charcoal and water colour wash in shading. Exercise in perspective drawing. Using shading to depict distance. Students should understand the relationship of the objects at the foreground with the ones at the background in size and shading.
IDD 208 teaches the elements, principles and techniques of mass production of designs or objects as the case may be. Students are to explore appropriate methods and materials for both manual and digital implementation of assignments in the replication of patterns, objects and illustrations and prints.
Introduction to the development of 3-Dimensional digital modeling skills and 2-Dimensional techniques.
