Course description: Drawing from the human figure is an enjoyable and powerful exploration into the cultural context of one’s own world. This course uses simple materials—charcoal and erasers, inks and brushes—as means of discovery. Ideas evolve through the process of the “drawn” language. Specific classroom exercises focus on visual analysis and the skills needed for expressive 2D form such as line, tone, mass and illusionistic space. Frequent individual critiques help students personalize their creative thinking. As in any practice, the more one draws the more comfortable one becomes with the materials and processes. It does not assume any prior experience or that one will become an artist but it prepares all to do stronger work in fields that depend upon creative thinking.

Class limited to 15 (12 undergraduates, 3 graduate students).
Location: Currier House "Tree House" (Radcliffe Quadrangle, 64 Linnaean Street)
