Summer 2016 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
â€œDrawing: the act of making a mark by dragging a tool across a receptive background, usually a piece of paperâ€, hardly conjures the impressions left us by the great masters such a da Vinci, Delocroix, or Rubens. In this class we will investigate a variety of drawing techniques, drawingâ€™s interpretive nature and the potential uses implied by the language of drawing in both a contemporary as well as historical context.
This class will focus on the initiation and cultivation of the basic drawing skills used in achieving a visually literate foundation in communicative and interpretive skills. This will include eye/ hand coordination skills, rendering techniques, value appropriation, composition, drawing construction, proportion and perspective. Realistic/representational drawing is an acquired skill set that we focus on in theory and practice. You will come out of this course with a knowledge base that if pursued, will allow you to record accurately your ideas and the world surrounding you.
text and visual resources will be supplied.
