Integrated Freehand Drawing


This course uses exercises in still life and figure drawing to expose students to various ways of seeing and of engaging the world through visual representation. Students learn to draw form, objects, and human bodies in their surroundings. Explorations include positive and negative space, edges and contours, and the effects of light and shadow. Students are expected to maintain and develop a sketchbook by drawing from observation at least once a day. Media used might include pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, and pastels.
