The article highlights the importance of introducing students to design skills while teaching them 3D modeling at the pre-university level. Theoretical justification of the approach is offered; the approach uses a step-by-step differentiation of the orienting basis structure of the students’ training-related activities as the principal psychological model of the process of developing the design skills. Three stages of developing the professional skills are distinguished and described: elementary, basic and professional. Types of assignments for each stage are analyzed.
