The teaching of drawing in BA Graphic Design courses in Brazil is frequently associated with paradigms mainly based on the development of technical skills. However, studies into drawing reveal it to be more than a simple representation, it is an important way of thinking for designers, connecting fields of knowledge and exploring creativity. Therefore, this study aimed to establish a proposal for teaching drawing linked to the foundations of the design process, exploring the diverse roles of drawing and ways of stimulating creativity. In order to achieve that, the study included a literature review and an Action Research exploring experiences of teaching drawing. The data was categorised and analysed through the Model of Activity System, establishing the foundation for the development of the proposal.
