This course is an introduction to principles and techniques in drawing. Emphasis will be on learning to draw what you see through close observation, including still-life, landscape, portrait and the nude figure. Students will be introduced to a variety of drawing materials and techniques as well as proportion, sighting, perspective, value and composition. Students will develop a context for their work through readings and research projects about influential artists. Students will be required to keep a sketchbook throughout the quarter and complete drawing assignments outside of class time. A final portfolio of completed assignments will be due at the end of the quarter.


For this remote-only course, students can expect up to 3-4 hours of Zoom meeting per week and roughly 4-5 hours of asynchronous coursework/independent work time per week.
