The Drawing program balances a solid foundation in observational skills with an investigation of the expressive and personal potential in the various media of drawing. Early courses provide the basis for the technical and intellectual methods necessary to succeed in all of the media of visual expression. Drawing is understood to be at once the most basic tool in visual thinking as well as an artform in its own right. Students are expected initially to develop and strengthen their skills in perspective, proportion, value, line and composition while working from landscape and interior, still life and portraits. The figure is explored extensively with a firm grounding in anatomy and structure as it relates to the artist. Later the figure is used for more expressive and personal interpretations.
