Watch the video for demonstrations and to practice drawing orthographic projections (2D views of a 3D object) and cross sections of a chair.

The goal of this assignment is to build on your basic sketching techniques and to introduce you to orthographic projections and cross sections as tools for visual expression. This assignment is intended to help you think about which 2D views you need to sketch in order to unambiguously represent an artifact.


Create a blog post for the assignment on the Week #2 page titled Question 2.3 with:


A sketch of a chair from the top view, front view and side view. Also sketch one cross section of some portion of the same chair. Compose these four sketches on one sheet. Label the views. All sketches must comply the guidelines from the first module on visual expression (i.e., clear dark lines with the sketch filling the frame).
