Drafting is the act of composing plans that visually communicate how something functions or is to be constructed.  Also known as “technical drawing,” it is essential in industry and engineering for communicating ideas using common symbols, perspectives, units of measure, and page layout.   This type of drawing is extremely precise vs. the forms of expressive drawing known as “visual arts.” Individuals who choose a career in Drafting and Illustrative Design work in construction, architecture, and engineering.  (Lincoln Park Academy, Port St. Lucie High School)
