Drawing Practices: Foundations


Fall 2014 quarter

Taught by

This course is an introduction to principles and techniques in drawing.  Students will gain a working knowledge of line, shape, perspective, proportion, volume, and composition.  Using both wet and dry media, students will experiment with the traditions of hand-drawn imagery.  Students will work toward the development of an informed, personal style, aided by research of various artistic movements and influential artists.  Students will be required to keep a sketchbook throughout the quarter and complete drawing assignments outside of studio time.  Presentations on the history and contemporary application of drawing will contextualize studio work.  A final portfolio of completed assignments is due at the end of the quarter.
