With the Drawing I course, students embark on their first college level studio art experience. This course introduces a sequence of visual problems using a variety of subjects, 2D concepts and drawing materials. It serves as a prerequisite and foundation course for all other studio art media. Students enrolled in upper level drawing courses will further advance their 2D problem solving skills and begin to define their individual goals as artists. After completing Drawing IV, a student may work independently on a self-directed drawing project with the approval and mentorship of a full-time faculty member. Recent examples include an illustrated children's book, an animated video, and a graphic novella.
