This course provides initial preparation for work in drawing, sculpture and other media in the visual arts. Students will develop their ability to perceive and construct visual images and forms across a range of subject matter. Projects will address both the two-dimensional picture plane and three-dimensional space from an array of observed and imagined sources. Multiple media will be used to explore the body, found and imagined objects, collage, and structures in nature and the built environment. The practice of drawing will be defined broadly to invite a diverse response. Slide presentations, readings, field trips to area art museums, and group critiques will provide students with historical and contemporary contexts for the development their work. This course culminates with a lengthy independent project.
