ART 2005 - Drawing II
This course is an intermediate level drawing course building upon the fundamentals of observation, artistic invention, perspective and composition through problems in still life and landscape. Drawing in both wet and dry media is explored along with the use of color and pastels. Lectures, drawing sessions, and structured critiques are used to develop the formal, conceptual, expressive, and technical understanding of the drawing process. Drawing II is designed to refine knowledge and skills gained in Drawing I and to extend the student’s ability to make sound choices toward the solving of compositional problems.
