NATA COACHING : HOW TO ATTEMPT 2D COMPOSITIONS ?
Updated: July 23, 2020
We’re back with an all new assignment that our students attempted this entrance season. The exercise focused on Nata Drawing Test : Creating interesting 2D Composition with the help of basic geometrical shapes like squares, circles, rectangles and triangles. Our faculties noticed that attempting the exercise directly without complete understanding resulted in below average compositions. So they decided to add a bit of fun. After a basic theory session on elements and principles of design and colour schemes, they started with the practical exercise. Students used coloured paper cut – outs of basic geometrical shapes and thread to represent lines to attempt the following.
