An introduction to drawing and creative visual problem solving. Emphasis is on the analysis and exploration of basic drawing techniques in the visual interpretation of natural and fabricated forms. Students will be introduced to a variety of drawing media. Two hours lecture, four hours studio each week. Formerly AR 101.

3 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate creative problem solving through the application of abstract theoretical concepts, development of observational skills, and the use of technical skills.
  • Use fundamental geometric volumes as building blocks for mastering complex forms. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Demonstrate the ability to use linear perspective principles to establish relationships of objects to each other in pictorial space. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Apply principles of perspective to representing real world environments. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Demonstrate an understanding of, and employ, the relationship between positive and negative shape and the picture plane. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
