ARTZ 212 - Drawing Studio: Personal Style

Credit(s): 3

Prerequisite(s): ARTZ 105 .
This course is aimed at students with varying degrees of ability who have successfully completed a beginning drawing program and wish to pursue drawing beyond the basic level. Exercises involving a broader variety of media, their application, and effects will be given emphasis. A portraiture component is included. Class problems and assignments will have enough flexibility to meet the individual needs of all students. The major aim of this course is to encourage the development of each student’s unique approach to drawing - a personal style. This course may be repeated for a total of nine credits. Students receiving financial aid or veteran’s benefits should check with the Financial Aid Office before repeating this course. (Spring Semester)

  • Make choices of paper and media, based upon the requirements of the project and personal preference.
  • Demonstrate a comprehensive competence in the differing approaches to drawing - line, structure, contour, value, and gesture.
  • Create drawings with the use of collage.
  • Participate in critiques, justifying your own, and discussing others’ work.
