Hello World: An Introduction to Drawing (DRW2122.01)

Colin Brant

The practice of drawing from observation brings us into direct contact with experiencing the visual world. Working from the human figure, landscape, plants and animals, or any other subject that inspires the imagination, this course introduces the fundamentals of seeing and translation with various drawing materials and approaches. The goals of the course include the development of individual confidence in observational, analytical drawing skills, and gaining a practical basis for further inquiry into all the visual arts. An introduction to the rich histories and contemporary concerns of drawing from diverse and inclusive points of view will be a running conversation throughout the course. Previous drawing experience may be helpful but is not required of students enrolling in this course. Note: A portion of this class may be spent drawing the nude human figure.
