Studio Art 116. Drawing I

Drawing is a universal language and a powerful tool of communication, making our thoughts and feelings visible and providing an effective means to investigate the world we live in. In this beginning class, students learn to “see” by engaging in intense observation and visual analysis. We explore the fundamentals of line, shape, value, proportion and perspective through a variety of drawing tools and materials. Working primarily from direct perception, students explore objects, landscape and the human figure. Drawing I links technical proficiency with conceptual development to create a solid foundation that prepares students for further study in visual art.
