This class will run from Monday, January 25-March 15)

An advanced drawing course built on the knowledge and skills learned in Drawing I & II and designed to help the students find their personal voice. We explore a variety of approaches and aspects in drawing that reveal the subjective in the objective, personal expression, as we search, destroy, and start again. While working from observation we go beyond representation to explore conceptual and pictorial issues and investigate a wide range of contemporary issues and themes. Studio activities, home projects, lectures, critiques, and demonstrations are designed to help the students expand their visual understanding and develop their critical, verbal, and technical skills necessary for the creative process.

Course content:
The course consists of studio assignments, demonstrations, and critiques followed by weekly homework. Participation in class discussion and critiques is crucial for improving the verbal skills in evaluating one’s work and others. Lectures and slides presentations will familiarize the students with traditional and contemporary issues in drawing. Emphasis will be on “seeing,” drawing analytically, process, experimentation, and intent. Working in series, finding various solutions to the same problem will explore resolutions of formal and expressive concerns.

Although, it is helpful to have some drawing experience, it is not a prerequisite.
