DRW1011 Drawing Foundations

This course introduces students to drawing skills through close examination of natural form, texture, objects, landscapes and the human form. Students explore line as outline, contour and gesture, and tone as variation in surface light. Through works of master artists as well as their own work, students study composition, point of view and critical perspective. Student-directed critiques after each rigorous drawing unit assist in furthering appreciation for different ways of seeing. A final project, developed by the student to demonstrate expression of line and application of drawing skills, culminates in a student exhibit. The Art Foundations curriculum for the BA SA introduces the student to the language, concepts, materials and techniques necessary to enter into the more advanced courses that will constitute the Focus Area for students pursuing a BA in Studio Art.
