CFA 1090. Fine Art Fundamentals I: Drawing. 3 Credits.
Drawing is the fundamental language of visual communication and an essential skill for all visual artists. In this course, you will improve your drawing skills through exercises in mark making, perspective, and line, with assignments also focusing on value, form and mass, and composition. Students will do gesture and contour drawings as well as fully developed drawings; frequent individual and group critiques foster both feedback and your own ability to express your point of view. Classes will include demonstrations, drawing the life model and still lifes, and exposure to the history and contemporary practice of drawing. First-year drawing is required of all prospective Fine Art majors and serves as the prerequisite for more advanced drawing, illustration, and animation courses.
