In this class, principles and elements essential to drawing are explored through a variety of media and methods. Students may use materials such as charcoal, graphite, markers, collage and water-based paint—as well as found materials and invented tools—in order to explore different processes in drawing. Students learn about a range of compositional strategies. Tonal studies, volume, weight and contour, line and form are pursued through observation and interpretation. Students will draw from observation, research, memory and imagination. We will be expanding the idea of what drawing is and why it is important: a thinking process, a way to explore, a way to solve visual problems, a way to broaden creative passages. Emphasis is placed on developing an active sketchbook practice that serves as an impetus for larger projects and allows others to understand your process.

- This is an asynchronous online course with no live class sessions or set meeting times. The course will include video presentations, detailed tutorials and discussion forums. Assignments will be sequenced so that one leads to the next and will include project deadlines. Students receive individualized support for idea development and critique of work. To keep pace with the course, students should expect to log in daily to CE Link, our online course management platform.
