This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of visual art in general and drawing in particular by focusing on perception, composition, line and materiality. Students will draw from objects, the human figure, interior and exterior spaces, and from imagined sources. We will explore a variety of materials and work small and large scale. Maintenance of an individual sketchbook will be expected. Regular class critiques will assist in developing skills evaluating work in progress, and in analyzing formal composition principles. Readings and one paper on an artist to be assigned will be part of this class.

Course Objectives:


Your attendance and participation of all classes is important and expected. More than two unexcused absences (and more than 3 total absences) throughout the term will result in a “no evaluation” for the course.
