RCARTS 288 — Beginning Drawing
Section 001, LAB

Instructor: Cressman,Joel L

FA 2007
Credits: 4
Reqs: CE

Drawing is the most basic of art skills and is at the core of the creative process. It promotes a deep respect for looking and thinking. Whether you are studying to be a visual artist, exploring an interest in art history or simply seeking to appreciate art, drawing can be an enriching experience giving one insight into the creative process and what artists do and have done over time. It is a common denominator for us all — at some point in our lives it came naturally. Introduction to Drawing aims to rediscover that natural impulse. We will explore traditional and contemporary approaches with an emphasis on eye/hand coordination and creative expression. Basic techniques and methods will be covered through work with still life, the figure and the imagination. The goal is to foster confidence and skill in understanding what we see and how to creatively transfer that understanding to the two-dimensional drawing surface. There is a studio lab fee.
