ART 115 - Drawing I (3)


This course introduces general drawing and compositional principles. Students will train their eyes and hands, develop powers of observation and learn to translate what they see on to paper. A variety of materials will be used: charcoal, pastel, and pencil. Drawing techniques covered are gestural line, contour "blind" drawing, still life, perspective. Students will focus on the elements of good drawing such as proportion, shading and modeling, line, and composition. As skills develop, students explore the expressive potential of different materials. Students will also look at various works of art to critique and analyze their composition/historical value and develop a portfolio of their studies and drawings.

Pre-requisite/Co-requisite(s): Students are responsible for purchasing art supplies.
