DYPDC’s Learn from the Masters day-long automotive sketching workshops were conducted in 8 cities, such as Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, with the idea of teaching participants the basics of automotive sketching: right from the process of car design to car segments to perspectives, volume, balance, shading, and a lot more. The sessions concluded with the evaluation of participants’ work.
These focussed, one-of-a-kind workshops were aimed at equipping students with the skills and confidence to build great portfolios, and give them a little taste of the exciting lives of automobile designers. Our expert faculty coached the students one-on-one, and taught them quick tips and tricks to master the art of sketching and ways to get progressively good at it.
The idea for such a workshop came about when most of our applicants expressed apprehension regarding their sketching skills.
Some applicants said: “I would love to be an automobile designer. I breathe, talk, sleep cars, but my only problem is that I’m slightly weak when it comes to sketching.”
Others said: “I have the ideas in my head but I can’t translate those ideas on to paper.”
This posed a concern for us. On one hand we needed students with such a burning desire to be automobile designers, but on the other hand we couldn’t admit students with average sketching skills. The answer lay in our desire to teach them, to give them the tools and to see if they could cope up. They did. The workshop results were amazing. We were thrilled to see their faces when they gave shape to the ideas in their heads.
One of the reasons these workshops were a great success was because of what the participants took away with them: the confidence to sketch well and a sense of accomplishment. The high point for them was the drastic change in their sketching output, the before-after results. It was also exciting for them to be among people who spoke their language, perhaps for the first time in their lives. They felt the energy of this collective passion and enthusiasm for automotive design.
So those who have been constantly emailing or calling us to inquire about the future workshops, get ready to unlock the designer in you. We will soon conduct several sketching workshops across the country. Get in touch with us to know eligibility requirements, registration process, workshop fee etc.
On a special request, we also conducted sketching workshops for reputed schools like IIT, Mumbai and VIT, Vellore.
