ARTS 100 Spring 2013 Drawing I

Also offered Fall 2012

Drawing extends your observational skills and, when combined with your intuitive and intellectual qualities, offers you an excellent means of communicating how, what, when and where you engage your experiences. As in any language, the descriptions of those observations begin with basic details and, with extensive practice, become more articulate. This requires of you the ability to focus, to frequently repeat the mundane in order to achieve the eloquent and to put aside judgment in favor of developing a self-critical awareness. The course features basic skill sets that rely on close scrutiny of our primary subjects: still life and landscape. The materials used will permit you to better understand their manipulation in describing form, shape, light and texture composed in illusionistic and abstract space. As your work matures during the term, we will begin a more careful examination of the rich, complex and challenging relationships between form and content.
