Life Drawing II

Structural drawing and perceptual skills are expanded through study of the figure’s relation to environment, life-scale, movement, and draping. Students discover individual sensibilities of mark making and aspects of personal vision, through a variety of traditional and experimental drawing media and techniques.

Prerequisite: FNDT180 Life Drawing

Life Drawing I

life_drawing_header

Sequenced instruction provides rigorous training in the use of gesture, anatomy, and structural figure drafting. Drawing the human figure from the inside out fosters an understanding of complex visual relationships. Upon completion of the course, students are able to analyze the human form and to view it as a complex perceptual model for the larger realm of visual experience.

 

Connections through Color and Design

Connections-color-design

A second-semester Integrated Learning studio course introducing students to contextually-based problem solving using fundamentals of color and design.

Students apply these skills in solving problems that engage the larger community, trans- disciplinary practice, research, and collaboration.
