Students embark on their first college-level studio art experience with the Drawing I course. This course introduces visual problems using various subjects, 2D concepts, and drawing materials. It is 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 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.
