This course focuses on freehand drawing from direct observation. Students learn drawing techniques, methods, linear perspective, and compositional skills. The properties of line, value, texture, shape and space are dealt with as elemental to the drawing process. Drawing will be explored as a vehicle for thinking, seeing and communicating. An ability to render and draw expressively in a variety of materials is stressed.
