This course combines the fundamental practice of observational drawing with conceptual strategies for constructing the drawn image. Students gain analytical skills through direct observation of studio setups as well as visits to museums and outdoor spaces. During classes students will approach drawing as a way of thinking, as a critical tool, and as a means of observation, storytelling, and representation. Technical and observational drawing skills will be developed through exercises, demonstrations, discussion and extended drawing times.
This course is suitable for students with some background in drawing and for students who have completed one or two years of university studies in art and design.
