It shall consist of 2 sections:
A colour compositional exercise will be carried out with free technique, based on the free interpretation of the proposed model.
The same or a different model shall be represented in a system specific to technical drawing languages.
Based on a given image, written answers will be given to questions and issues related to this image and to general topics of the speciality to be entered.
