ART 121 DRAWING II - 5 CR
A Lindman D for syllabus, supplies and links
Advance drawing is meant to build on the outcomes you worked on in Art 120 (Beginning Drawing) You will improve on both your conceptual and perceptual skills while exploring different materials and techniques.
Drawing two will introduce the student to various objective and subjective aspects of drawing to stimulate personal creativity and expression and engage you in the ongoing process of creative problem solving.
I. COURSE OUTCOMES
The knowledge and skills the student should hone and/or acquire during advanced drawing are as follows:
a. Scale and proportional relationships
b. Ability to accurately transfer shape to the two-dimensional picture plane
C. Seeing the contour of a 3‑dimensional form
d. To see and use positive and negative space relationships in their drawings.
e. Ability to translate visual information from student’s viewpoint to the paper
f. Have the ability to create an illusion of depth by linear perspective and foreshortening.
g. Create depth and volume by value: local value, the use of a light and shadow.
h. Aerial or atmospheric perspective.
i. Practice using compositional devices for creating depth (location on page, size, overlapping, diagonals, etc.).
j. Seeing relationships to the entire page have the ability to relate parts to the whole (composition).
k. Become more skilled with familiar drawing materials, experiment with new materials
Many of the above skills will be practiced using a life model as subject.
This will necessitate acquiring new skills and information.
Additional outcomes (than the ones addressed above) in drawing the figure will be:
a. Familiarity of human form as a whole, seen as a relationship of parts
b. Gesture studies of movement and mass
c. Planar and geometric structure of the figure
d. Basic anatomy and proportions of the figure
e. Developing the figure in compositional arrangements
II. COURSE EXPECTATIONS
Students are expected to:
1. Attend class regularly. Students absent more than 4 times may receive an F grade
2. Complete class work projects on your own time if you are not able to during the class
3. If you miss information regarding an assignment, it is your responsibility to get that
assignment from another Student.
4. You are expected to participate in the critique process.
5. We will be working with live models throughout the quarter. These models are scheduled in advance and will work through the entire session except during required breaks. The room is not opened to anyone who is not
enrolled in this course. Models are to be treated with privacy and professional courtesy.
DO NOT BE LATE WHEN A MODEL IS IN SESSION. The room is only open during breaks for entrance.
Grading is based on all class work and homework. The in-class work is designed for the achievement and practice of the course’s outcomes where the instructor can assist and answer questions. Home assignments will address more in-depth explorations of issues with an emphasis on creative problem solving.
Drawings will be graded as a group in a mid-quarter portfolio worth 30% of your grade and a final portfolio worth the remaining 70% of your grade.
The instructor is available throughout the quarter for individual evaluation or input on specific assignments.
An “A” grade means mastery of all course outcomes and exceptional quality in your drawings.
“B” level requires an above average, reasonably complete mastery of course outcomes.
“C” level is for people that extend a reasonable effort and meet all requirements (assignments, attendance etc.) for the course.
“D” and below is indication of not meeting the requirements for this class.
Lockers are available in Building C hallways, and are allotted, one to each three students. You claim a locker, simply by writing your and your locker mates' names on the tag in the door. Your group of three is responsible for obtaining a lock. Be sure to empty your locker at the end of the quarter by the date shown on the form.
