This course is an introduction to the principles and techniques in drawing. Students will gain a working knowledge of line, shape, perspective, proportion, volume and composition. Using both wet and dry media, students will experiment with the traditions of hand drawn imagery. Students will work toward the development of an informed personal style, aided by research of various artistic movements and influential artists. Students will be required to keep a sketchbook throughout the quarter and complete drawing assignments outside of studio time. Presentations on the history and contemporary application of drawing will contextualize studio work. A final portfolio of completed assignments is due at the end of the quarter.
