Foundation Drawing and the Human Form

Open, Seminar—Spring

This course explores drawing as a tool for self-expression, imagination, and storytelling and as a language for exploring and communicating ideas. The first half of the class will concentrate on developing the skill sets of observational drawing: linear drawing, tonal drawing, mass and volume, negative space, contour, proportion/sighting, planar construction, and composition. The human form will be the focus of the second half of the class. Students will draw from the model and make artworks using the human form as the basis of and/or point of departure for using traditional and experimental materials and processes. Throughout the semester, there will be keynote presentations on contemporary and historical drawing, a study trip to a New York City museums/galleries, and group and individual critique.
