Prerequisites: Full Major or Intermediate or Minor status in BFA Studio Art.
This Foundations course, required of all BFA majors in Studio Art, introduces students to the concept of illusion through principles and elements of design using the technique of Drawing. Mapping is a process of abstraction and translation of the physical world into two dimensions. Principles including scale, balance, emphasis, unity and variety, value, line, shape, and texture will be explored through a range of monochromatic drawing media, including graphite pencil, charcoal, and ink. Students will learn and use beginning drawing skills in a series of projects that focus on independent decision-making, analysis, and the effective use of terminology.
