THE SCOPE OF ARTISTIC ABILITIES TEST

1.   Drawing task no. 1 – presentation of a 3D element in the "flat" form.

In this task, a solid figure will be shown in axonometry. The sides of the figure indicated by arrows will have to be drawn in the flat form (without foreshortenings and perspective distortions).

2.   Drawing task no. 2 – a drawing "fitting" into the context of the environment.

In this task, there will be a background, i.e. man-made space. The task will be to complement this space, e.g. with buildings that fit into this environment (background).

3.   Drawing task no. 3 – street furniture

The task will be to draw a piece of undersized street furniture in relation to a human figure that will already be on the page.

Tasks 1, 2 and 3 are designed to determine the applicant's ability to make careful and selective observations about a composition by producing a hand drawing. Drawing instruments may be used in task 1. The applicant should determine the appropriate scale of the elements that make up the spatial arrangement, their proportions and their relationships to each other.

Drawing technique

The drawings should be executed in pencil, black crayon or brush. The drawing should be made on white paper (A-4). Each drawing should be made in one technique, i.e. it is not allowed to mix drawing techniques on one sheet of paper, e.g. black crayon and pencil,, neither are colour representations.

The manner of executing the drawings

Drawing task no. 1 should be executed linearly. Chiaroscuro modelling should appear in drawing tasks 2 and 3. Drawing deformation, stylisation and other drawing representations of this type are excluded.

Number of drawings

You are required to complete 3 drawing tasks. It is not permitted to attach further drawings, e.g. with other variants of the solution to the task, explanations, sketches, etc., or to describe the drawing task, sign it with your name and surname, use any markings or symbols on it.
