Drawing II
3 Credit Hours

Students will continue to hone the life drawing skills developed in Drawing. Technical proficiency with graphite and charcoal will be increased, while wet media (washes, ink) and color media (pastels, color pencils) will be introduced. Subject matter of life drawing projects will refine visual observations, and include the human figure, portraiture, self-portraiture, landscapes, and the still life. Abstracted compositions will allow students to experiment with drawing as a tool for visual expression. All drawing projects and sketchbook assignments will encourage the development of a personal visual style. Students will explore the work of both historical and contemporary artists. Via self- and class critiques, students will evaluate their own work and that of their peers. Participation in the student art show is required.
