Drawing for the Absolute Beginner (DRWG120-36)

Do you want to learn to draw but don't know how to get started? This is an ideal course for people with little or no experience in drawing. The course involves drawing from direct observation with an emphasis on the line quality, value, shading, negative space and perspective. Students will create texture in their drawings as they explore the aesthetics of mark making. The skills necessary to make a good drawing are developed through basic materials such as pencils and charcoal. Source material will include still life arrangements, working from nature, and photographs. This course will also include a couple of field trips so that the students can experience drawing on location. By the end of twelve weeks you will have the confidence to sit down in front of any subject and start to draw. Suitable for beginners.

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. Suitable for beginners.
