Drawing is fundamentally about learning to see, and to transport that vision onto paper through a variety of mark making techniques. The class will consist of in class projects along with homework assignments that will supplement the in class work. We will learn a variety of drawing techniques as well as explore the variety of drawing materials that are available. Besides drawing projects the class time will also include critiques and slide lectures. OBJECTIVES 1. To visually perceive, analyze, and interpret visual information through the act of drawing. 2. To work with the visual elements of line, shape, from, space, value, and texture in the creation of drawings. 3. Gain an understanding of figure and ground and their role in a drawing. 4. Recognize and synthesize the representational and abstract considerations of drawing. 5. Gain an understanding of how to incorporate narrative, psychological, emotional, and conceptual aspects of drawing and how to balance those with technique to create a drawing. 6. Begin to develop an individual drawing language that allows you to express your own vision and ideas. GENERAL COURSE CONCEPTS 1. Gesture – Capturing the essence of an object or scene by focusing on the fundamental structure rather than the details.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
