COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1. Develop and apply intermediate level drawing and composition concepts.
2. Make critical choices about their work and verbalize a description of this to others.
3. Practice drawing dynamics to create aesthetic value and develop a more advanced understanding of pictorial space using a variety of drawing materials and assemble a portfolio of personal work.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
In order to achieve these learning outcomes, during the course students will:
1. Demonstrate improved perceptual awareness of visual elements and compositional concerns.
2. Develop and apply the concepts of line, volume, light, tonal and textural contrasts, and space in greater depth.
3. Employ a greater variety of graphic media, tools, and surfaces.
4. Demonstrate competence in using this greater range of media and tools appropriately, flexibly, and imaginatively.
5. Advance self-expression through apply drawing methods using color media of pastels and colored pencils.
6. Demonstrate independence and ability to critically analyze and judge one's own work and the work of others.
7. Investigate the non-objective: the unconscious, the gestural, the spontaneous, the improvisational.
8. Involve a more personal approach to and greater self-expression in drawing.
9. Define health and safety issues that could arise from the use of graphic arts materials, by properly using spray fixatives, inks, and other drawing materials.
