Approaches to Drawing

ARTE 0298

Enrich your drawing using layered imagery, surface manipulation, mark-making and alternative tools. Experience a thoughtful way to making decisions about how to draw out objects and ideas. Take the opportunity to try an open concept approach while thinking about conceptualizing and creating your art work. You may consider questions like: ‘Will I set a goal?’ ‘How can I best express beauty?’ ‘What elements can I add to create an engaging image?’ Or, you may prefer to use an experimental, free approach to looking at the same subject from different viewpoints. You may decide to interpret that subject through expressionism, visual storytelling or high realism style. You may also choose to be inventive by playing with visual approaches like flatness, volume, texture, exaggerated perspective or optical tricks. Through this methodology, you will enhance your experience and your portfolio with a range and variety of unique projects. Recommended prerequisite: Previous drawing course. Note: A list of art supplies for students to purchase will be sent via email before the first class. Various drawing materials will be used.
