Beginning drawing is concerned with the ability to see images accurately and relate them to the page. The application of various drawing exercises from life (still life objects, nature, each other) is directed to build your drawing skills and enable you with an ability to render correctly.
I. COURSE OUTCOMES
The knowledge and skills the student should acquire during beginning drawing are as follows:
II. COURSE EXPECTATIONS
Students are expected to:
1. Attend class regularly. Students absent more than 4 times may receive a F grade
2. Attend class on time. Students arriving late or leaving early means you are
marked ½ day absent.
3. Complete class work on time. Complete homework on time.
4. In addition to assigned homework, you are expected to complete projects begun in
class on your own time , if you are not able to during the class period. C 256 will
be open on Fridays, Sat. & Sun. for student use. Hours will be posted.
5. If you miss information regarding an assignment, it is your responsibility to get
that assignment from another Student.
6. You are expected to participate in the critique process.
STUDIO GUIDELINES: For the purpose of making the classroom environment and studio time beneficial to ALL students by limiting behavior which distracts from students ability to concentrate on their work, please employ the following guidelines:
no eating in class (use break time)
- no beepers, cell phones-NO TEXT MESSAGING! IPODS etc. are OK as long as
lecture or critique is not taking place
- use studio time for assigned work (not math assignments, writing letters, etc
- general conversation(outside of lecture) and student interaction is encouraged, but
try and not disturb the class as a whole, if so, you will be asked to leave the class
room by the instructor.
BREAK: There will be a 15 minute break at mid-class each day
A materials list is part of this syllabus. You are required to have these materials available to you on and after the 2nd day of class. Lockers are provided for this purpose. DO NOT COUNT ON PURCHASING MATERIALS DURING THE CLASS STUDIO - PURCHASE IN ADVANCE.
Grading is based on both in‑class and homework drawing assignments. The in‑class work is designed for the achievement of the above stated drawing objectives in a studio environment where your instructor can assist you and answer your questions. The home assignments will address more in‑depth explorations of the techniques discussed in class.
Generally, persons who extend a reasonable effort and MEET ALL THE REQUIREMENTS (assignments, attendance, etc.) will attain at lease a "C" level, although there are, of course, no guarantees. A "C" level grade from this course on your transcripts or resumes signifies that you are COMPETENT in your drawing abilities regarding the above stated drawing outcomes.
"B" level will require an above average; reasonably complete mastery of the drawing objectives.
An "A" level will additionally require outstanding skill development, illustrated by exceptional drawings completed in both the homework and in‑class assignments.
In addition to monitoring your project grades, I also maintain a studio evaluation in order to be able to respond to questions regarding your class participation. I record the following:
0 = absent
L late counts as one half absence ( students need to alert me if they have missed
LE = left early (counts as one half absence)
NP = not prepared
NW = not working
PC = participates in critique
YOUR WORK WILL BE EVALUATED IN REGARDS TO YOUR PROFICIENCY IN THE MASTERY OF COURSE OUTCOMES SUCCESSFULLY IN YOUR DRAWINGS***, 60% on Final portfolio, 30% on Mid-quarter portfolio, 10% on classroom participation and involvement in critiques, in both presenting work and discussing it.
