VMA-104 Drawing from Observation

This introductory studio course examines the basic vocabulary, principles, and skills of drawing. Using a wide range of media, students work primarily from observation to master techniques of objective drawing. While concentrating on formal visual elements such as line, shape, value, texture and limited color, students work with principles of figure/ground, scale, positive and negative space, proportion, perspective, volume, light, composition and pictorial unity. Through drawing, discussion, critique, and research, students will explore mark making as an expressive endeavor. This course meets the General Education requirement for Creative Work.
