Course Description

Drawing is a foundational course in objective drawing using various media. The course focuses on the formal elements of line, shape, form, value, texture, and space in drawn images, with the intent of refining dexterity, perceptual, and visualization skills. Students learn about figure/ground relationships, relative position and proportion, linear perspective, and light effects on form and space. Students are introduced to compositional and drawing strategies within the context of historic and contemporary references and are encouraged to find personal solutions to set problems.
