Drawing 1

ARTS 1010 - 3 credits


Drawing 1 is a studio course which presents a strong introduction to basic drawing concepts. It is designed for both experienced art students who want to develop portfolios for transfer and for non-art majors who have little or no previous experience in art and want to develop aesthetic understanding and drawing skills.

Projects are based on subjects such as still life, landscape and inventive forms and may incorporate media such as charcoal, graphite, ink, and collage. Students explore form and structure from observation and imagination through the use of line, shape, value and texture.

This course is required for all AFA majors and is strongly suggested for all other students. This course is seen as an important foundation for success in all art studio courses.

Studio:4 hours
