DRAWING

Drawing from the Masters (DRWG240-36)

This course draws directly on the rich tradition of artists' training: learning the elements of art by copying the "Masters." In this course students explore visual art's seven fundamental building blocks of line, shape, colour, texture, form, value and space while developing a regular sketching "habit". With help from Nicolaides, Robert Beverly Hale, and Hans Hoffmann, this course will be delivered through rigorous in-class exercises, slide show presentations, and special projects relating to the techniques of Rembrandt, Rubens, DaVinci, Raphael and Schongauer, as well as a few 19th and 20th century master drafts people such as Hiroshige, Hockney, Cezanne, Schiele and Dumas. Use of traditional materials such as ink and charcoal will be encouraged.

How to Draw (DRWG111-36)

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, a live model and photographs. Course will also include a field trip so students can experience drawing on location.
