This course is an introduction to principles and techniques in drawing. Emphasis will be on learning to draw what you see through close observation. Students will be introduced to a variety of drawing materials and techniques as well as proportion, sighting, perspective, value and composition. Students will develop a context for their work through readings and research projects about influential artists. Students will be required to keep a sketchbook throughout the quarter and complete drawing assignments outside of studio time.
