The paper presents the consequences for the architectural profession resulting from the evolution of the process of fine arts teaching on the example of the changing curricula at the Faculty of Architecture, Silesian University of Technology. The curricula in arts subjects ranging from the 90s up till now will be analyzed. Conducted analysis of the changes lead to a number of conclusions about impoverishment of aesthetic sensitivity and artistic skills of students and contemporary graduates. Currently, students mostly use computer drawings because they have poor ability to create understandable freehand sketches. We postulate the return to the past, good practices, to increase the number of the fine arts teaching hours, seeking better links between engineering design and artistic as well. It is principle that the use of new technologies workshop (including a PC) must go hand in hand with advanced knowledge about art solutions in every architectural project.
Keywords: Fine arts teaching programmes, handwritten sketches, architecture student’s aesthetic sensitivity.
