Drawing from Observation will equip students with a solid foundation in drawing from life, with strong attention to nuance and detail. Students will gain an understanding of a variety of drawing materials, the vocabulary necessary for critiquing the technical and aesthetic aspects of a work of art, and an understanding of the basic elements and principles of 2D design. The course will cover such techniques as contour line, value, perspective, and gesture. Other highlights include lectures by working artists and talks on contemporary art as they pertain to class. Lectures as well as group and individual critiques will serve to supplement the work in class. No prerequisite.
