  • Determining the core elements and procedures for the sketched depiction of a physical space;
  • Understanding what is expected of an observational sketch;
  • Organizing and correctly structuring a sketch;
  • Acquiring proportion references;
  • Identifying procedures to bring forth three-dimensionality when sketching;
