The course introduces students to drawing as a means of visual inquiry and builds the skill to articulate both perceptual and conceptual visualizations; and introduces methods of analyzing concepts and visualizing ideas, as well as conventions of scale, time, and relationship as expressed in a wide variety of fields. Students work from observation, supplemented by rigorous critique and systematic exposure to historical and contemporary precedents for their practice; and explore graphs, maps, scores, plans, calendars, storyboards, instructions and forms that cannot yet be observed, to invent visual vocabularies capable of expressing personal thoughts, experiences, and beliefs. Students ultimately evolve their own definition of what drawing is by making drawing a vital part of their creative practice. Participation in group discussions and critiques is required.
