ART 101 - Drawing 1

3 credits

Working with a range of media, students learn to draw from direct observation, with an emphasis on fundamental elements of visual representation including mass, shape, line, value, and texture, and principals of composition. Drawing is studied as a tool to help enhance powers of observation and imagination, and to cultivate appreciation and understanding of drawing as a form of visual expression. Drawing from the nude human figure is also explored. Lectures and critical discussions challenge students to respond perceptually and conceptually to visual works presented in the studios (including historical examples), and to organize their insights through visual analysis.

Notes: This class is open to all students; no previous art experience is necessary.
