Materials list





Drawing 1 is a beginning class that will teach students the fundamental skills needed to turn ideas and perceptions into two-dimensional form. By learning to draw you will sharpen observation, empower self-expression and sharpen observation skills. During the course of the semester, students will explore drawing as mark-making, as gesture and as pattern. To represent objects in space, the use of light and shadow as well as various other techniques of perspective and contrast will also be introduced. At the end of the semester students will be able to demonstrate a fundamentally sound command of drawing basics as well as an ability to discuss their work using aesthetic and philosophical terms.
