Drawing is considered the core skill foundation for all art and design. The study of drawing develops individual coordination between the hand, the eye, and the brain. A well articulated study of drawing creates for the student an essential visual vocabulary for the making of art as well as individual development of skills necessary for the generation of artistic expression. For many working artists, drawing is a lifetime study.
Drawing 1 ARTS 1010
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.
Drawing 2 ARTS 1050
Drawing II is a studio/workshop course which advances the student's understanding of drawing and design elements by observation of the human form. Models will pose for the class. Gesture, proportion, mass, balance and environmental relationships will be explored. Some study of human anatomy will be required.

Drawing 3 ARTS 2050

Drawing II & III meet concurrently to allow participation in both groups. Visits to galleries and museums will be encouraged.
