Drawing Emphasis

 

The Drawing Emphasis is created by a structured series of courses in Fine Arts as well as available courses in other programs at the college.  Students explore how mark-making can be a powerful tool for communicating ideas.  Material choices range from the traditional (graphite, charcoal and ink) to the conceptual (mud, oil, thread, marker and more).
