Drawing, one of the basic disciplines that are used in all fields of plastic arts, is an important step consisting of the applications related to drawing in the process of art training. One who has gained the ability of analysis/solution, synthesis/unity and systematic thinking through drawing education reflects this skill in the works he/she created in all areas of plastic arts. Drawing education, described as a mental process that is based on seeing and in which an idea is designed and shaped, and whose visual side is dominant, improves the skill of shaping what he/she has perceived as well. In order for the messages that are wanted to be conveyed to be given in an effective and proper way, it is necessary to know the principles of designing and to apply them in the process of designing. In this process, drawing design plays an important role in the process of designing and application of the idea. Because drawing and designing create a natural unity. Day by day, due to the fact that the usage of the mouse has increased and that the usage of pencil has decreased as a result of the facilities that technology has presented, drawing that have been ignored in terms of time and value have been thought to be an important point to be regarded and not to be left out. From this article written in order to raise consciousness on this subject, the conclusion that "behind the successful works done in the graphic designing field lays a strong knowledge and education of drawing" can be drawn.
