    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Being a mandatory course for first year students, it really truly teaches you the essence and techniques of drawing. We started with studies of the skeleton accompanied by the cross contour technique. We learnt angle analysis, triangulation, interior studies, exterior studies, effect of light on objects study, the importance of figure model and how it's placed in an environment and many more independent projects. With 10-20 hours of homework each week, I truly learnt a lot in this class with this teacher and recommend it fully.

    Course highlights:

    Explained in the above question

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be on top of your game and you will succeed with flying colors.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She was an excellent instructor who helpfully enforced structure, fulfilling the course's goal of providing a drawing bootcamp for incoming freshmen.

    Course highlights:

    Forcing me to draw larger than I have ever before, at one point using a ladder, and to appreciate charcoal in all its forms since we exclusively used charcoal the entire class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Put in the hours on the homework and don't slack on the quality, it is worth focusing on and it help drastically improve your work in class and in future homework.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Clara Lieu is a fantastic teacher for anyone who is committed to becoming a great artist in any field. She designs her class with clear intention and her teaching methods are successful and an overall fun experience.

    Course highlights:

    The majority of the crits were entertaining and lively and meant for students to learn even when their work was not on the board. The topic of the projects she assigns are engaging and comprehensive.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're taking this course try to do your homework during the day for her class takes a lot of attention and much sleep is needed prior.
