Intermediate Drawing

Prerequisite: ART 132.

Class Description

This is an intermediate drawing class which stresses an  investigation and understanding of formal language (composition, line, proportion, value, space, color, etc.) as it relates to drawing.

Classroom sessions will be devoted to drawing, looking at artists' work, discussions, and critiques.

Recommended preparation

All prerequisites

Class Assignments and Grading

There will be assignments to be completed outside of class time. An amount of time at least equal to that spent in class should be budgeted for out of class assignments. Homework is generally assigned on the second  meeting of each week and is due one week later. There will be 7-8 homework assignments over the quarter.

Students are  expected to be prepared with sufficient quantities of all materials needed for class work and assignments. All work done over the course of the quarter must be saved and kept in good order for final portfolio review.

Grades are assessed by reviewing  drawings done in class, homework assignments, and overall performance (i.e. preparedness, participation in discussions, degree of improvement). The largest component of the grade (90% or more) is based  on the quality of the drawings as they relate to given problems or assignments.

The information above is intended to be helpful in choosing courses. Because the instructor may further develop his/her plans for this course, its characteristics are subject to change without notice. In most cases, the official course syllabus will be distributed on the first day of class.
