Drawing: Exploration of Materials (DRWG207-36)

In this course students explore a range of both traditional and unconventional drawing materials, such as graphite, conté, inks, oil sticks, gouache, erasers, thread, wire, cardboard, fabric, recycled or natural materials, and wax. Through in-class drawing exercises and both collaborative and independent drawing projects – investigating a combination of continuous, reductive, value, observational, text-based, abstract, and perspective drawing – students will experience the expressive and conceptual potential of integrating drawing techniques, materials, scales, and surfaces. The course will also include demonstrations, critiques, introductory readings, written reflections, video screenings, and brief lectures, introducing students to prominent contemporary drawing practices, and encouraging students to reconsider the definitions of drawing through diverse drawing materials and approaches.
