ART2019 Advanced Drawing 20.5 credit per semester
This course focuses on portfolio development by refining observational drawing and rendering skills. In addition, students will experiment with forms of drawing, compositional structures, concepts, media, and art-making approaches to communicate personal perceptions in original artworks. They will analyze how visual imagery influences understanding of and responses to the world. Students develop critical-thinking skills when interpreting and evaluating drawing by synthesizing both technical and aesthetic characteristics of drawing. Writing, academic language, and critical-thinking skills are developed through artist statements, critiques, and the close reading of artworks as text.
