4 hours; 3 credits. This course studies drawing as a primary tool of vision and consequently as a means of apprehending the world around us. The essentials of perspective, anatomy, and drawing from observation are followed by an introduction to the analysis of compositional dynamics. Students may work from the human form, still life, and/or landscape. Studio classes are tutorial by nature and are supplemented by group critiques, outside assignments, museum visits, written papers, and student presentations. Students will become familiar with various drawing media, which may include charcoal, conté crayon, pastel, ink, and graphite. (arts & com.)
