Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Create sketches and drawings.


Creating sketches and drawings may include using pencil, graph paper, T-square, triangle, protractor, and computer design software.

Process/Skill Questions

  • Why is sketching important?
  • What is the difference between a sketch and a drawing?
  • What information might a drawing give?
